Esther KoAnimatorBioware

Esther has been moving things around in games the past 7 years and is still loving every minute of it! She squished goofy monsters in Dungeon Defenders 2, dunked a bunch of basketballs in NBA Live 15 and 16, lead the animation charge for some champions in Paladins, and most recently, flew some exo-suits into the sky for Anthem. Esther is the creator and co-host of a podcast called A Keyframe of Mind, which is a platform to discuss truthful aspects of being a game animator and to advocate healthy lifestyles and mindsets for burned-out creatives. She has previously spoken in front of both professional and student audiences about the various responsibilities of game animators across the industry, studied animation in front of Twitch audiences in a live-streamed animation course called Rise and Spline, as well as presented on multiple panels for the Animation Exchange, an online conference featuring talks on all aspects of animation from developers all around the world. Currently, Esther is an animator for Bioware and trying not to spend all of her free time giggling over goofy dog videos.
