Hello there! If you are hitting this page, you are probably asking yourself "who is dahanese?" Well, that's me! My name's Elizabeth Tobey, and I'm a native East Coaster, transported to the Bay area for work in 2006 (and I returned to the mothership again at the end of 2014 but San Francisco rubbed off on me and I now think of myself as bi-costal.) I came to San Francisco with 2K Games, where I worked from 2006 to 2012 as head of Community and Customer Service. After that, I moved to Trion Worlds as Director of Community, then Director of Global Communications. From there, I joined Smule as their Director of Marketing. I'm now the Director of Support at tumblr!
When I'm not working, I do the following things: I love video games, the video game industry, and pretty much all things connected to gaming in any regard. I play a ton of board games and also played in a weekly tabletop game that is livestreamed on Twitch as the Thursday Knights (and I'll still be guest starring when I'm back on the west coast!) I have a slightly obsessive fascination with statistics and Runkeeper, which works out because I run, bicycle, and take a bunch of boot camp-y classes. I also think that Zombies, Run! is the best running app-slash-podcast-y-radio-drama ever, so if you like to exercise, check it out.
In additon to game-type stuff, I cook and write a lot (and am pretty darned good at both if I do say so myself) and I have a menagerie of animals: two cats, Miso and Sake, and a miniature long haired dachshund named Pancake. (My love of cooking is not the reason I named my animals after food products, although if that were the case, it would probably be a better explanation than the real story.) I live in Manhattan with my husband, Mike, who somehow still tolerates me, even after all these years.
Fun disclaimer text: This blog is mine, and these are my own personal opinions and stories. This space and what is contained within this site is not affiliated with anything, or anyone, except myself. I actually think this kind of disclaimer is dumb and no one asked me to put it here, either, but I do because even though this is clearly my own blog and I already know that anything written publicly can and will be used against you in the court of public opinion, people still sometimes quote things I say here as if I'm going to be embarrassed by them. Protip: I'm not.
