Hello there! Welcome to my website.
My name is Kirsten Kane: I was born and raised in Southern California, where I spent the last 29 years before moving to Seattle in Summer 2021. I’m avid gamer (both video games, and miniature wargames) esports fan, rock climber, beginner DJ, craft beer enthusiast, and an alumnus in Computer Science from the University of California, Irvine.
I am currently working as a Backend Engineer at Lightforge Games. Formerly, I was a Software Engineer on the Hearthstone Server team at Blizzard Entertainment.
In my spare time, I love to work with all things code: whether that be creating video games on my own or with a team, creating mods, or even small electronics projects. You will find references to these very projects right here on this website!
Gaming is one of my true passions – I’ve been playing since I can remember. From the days of Super Mario Kart, to Ocarina of time, to World of Warcraft, and Mass Effect, I’ve always been excited to embark on the next epic adventure to see where it takes me.
These experiences have always been a big part of my life, and they would eventually help me discover my love of programming – where I could make (almost) anything I wanted with just a computer and an imagination.
