Shani Owen

Recruiter - Graduates

I love music, watching films and TV shows, seeing friends and family and a good shopping spree! I love Netflix and am always looking for more recommendations on what to watch as I have usually watched the latest episodes of the most popular shows. I also love most music genres and finding new artists to listen to. When watching TV I try and watch lots of documentaries to educate myself on the world around me as I see this as very important. Often I watch documentaries on people with views that contrast to my own in order to widen my perspective and try and understand how people think and behave. I cannot wait for my future at Aardvark getting to know everyone and my job role more along the way!

How did you get into games as a hobby?

My family mostly. They played a lot of PlayStation games and got me one when I was about 8. I started off playing games like Sonic and Crash Bandicoot. As I got older I became much more interested in Nintendo and often play lots of games in the Zelda/Mario universe. I like games with a story and ones that make me think a lot.

What’s your career background?

Previous to working at Aardvark I worked in retail for four years. It gave me lots of experience at working with and around people and has set me up well for working in my new role here at Aardvark where I'm speaking to both clients and the games developers themselves all day long, I love it!
