"What I saw was a strong, capable, and confident woman who was really well-rounded. Not only did she love games and could speak eloquently about her choices, she also has a business-savvy mind where she can see things objectively."

"I see her becoming an amazing powerhouse because of her understanding of all facets of the game business. She's got the objectivity, the business smarts, the

creativity, as well as a thirst for knowledge and learning. She wants to know more, whether it's about programming, game design, or anything else there is to offer regarding games."

"Karin even went so far as to learn Japanese so that she could communicate with our Japanese staff. I haven't seen someone that awesome and so eager to learn."
