Suddenly CORGIS everywhere
Artist | Student | Varied

Your handy dandy CEA member (Copyright Etiquette Administrator) who handles all your unsavory bits and boobs...and no that's not a typo. Been on DeviantART a gosh darn long while. You'll find me more than likely digging around not-so-well known artists pages and flittering about comic and Gargoyles groups. I'm a big fan of comics and can usually be found making a couple of my own- I think it's the most entertaining way to tell a story. Also gargoyles. Love me some Disney's Gargoyles.

Living in L.A has cultivated a healthy appreciation for film and acting. Especially those who wouldn't generally be considered mainstream or 'big' names. Some notable favs are Sockbaby, or Thatguywiththeglasses.com. I'm a PIXAR and Disney freak and eat up about anything they release. I'm new to the fanart scene, but look forward to filling up my gallery with some fangasms. Also, corgis. Corgis everywhere. :heart:

Interests
Gosh, the beginning fired up way back when. I think it was 2002, and I was at the tail end of high school learning that you didn't use your real name on the internet (according to my boyfriend at the time).

 Highschool by kozispoon

I've had this account and this username for ever evah, and DeviantART was my 'home base' to share my anything and everything. I can't think of another community I liked better than this one when it came to just being immersed in art that I liked. Hell, even challenged my concepts of what art should be! I was dazzled by the idea way back when, but even now, being able to put something out there and have it be seen by dozens (or even hundreds!) of fellow deviants across the globe still fascinates me. I was introduced to tons of fandoms and made lots of friends along the way solely based on commenting and deviation submissions, and that's nuts. To think that's all it takes to make a connection with someone halfway across the world. I was hooked!

Submit-fever by kozispoon

The opportunity to work for dA came about when my current job at Disney Interactive was being moved to Canada. I was thrilled to be moving to a job that would let me engage in a newfound love for moderation as well as be art -centric. Hell, even if it wasn't, I sure as hell was going to make it one! 

Job-move by kozispoon

Needless to say, that much anticipated 'you're hired!' phonecall with fourteenthstar was a little confusing.
 Translation by kozispoon

I became a staff member for deviantART on August 1st 2011, just a month after good ol' dxd. I work as a Copyright and Etiquette Administrator (CEA) which is fancy pants talk for the yahoos that get to look at all the stuff you report. As part of the CEA team I've been able to learn you a thing when it comes to our policies, but through awesome visual aids! From articles discussing harassment, to comics about devMeets, tongue in cheek peeks behind the curtain on CEA's day-to-day, and even sex toys?? It's been a crazy, but never let it be said it wasn't interesting!

Did you know my own birthday falls just a couple days after deviantART's birthday? Definitely makes it one rambunctious month! When I first got hired back in August of 2011, I was only in the dA office 7 days before I was surrounded by people I was still getting to know, getting my party on! It was wild to not only celebrate deviantART's 11th birthday at the time, but also feel so welcome and celebrated in my own right once my birthday came around. Throughout it all, aunjuli and damphyr have not only been my co-workers, but have become my compadres, the one and two to our three caballero trio! Three cheers for those two ludicrously lovely ladies!

 Oh, and don't mind my boring office 'suit'. After the first week I was wearing sneakers and jeans with the best of them.

Party by kozispoon

In 2013, my husband got a job opportunity in Helsinki, Finland, and moving was inevitable. Lucky for me, I was allowed to become a remote employee. My time in the dA office was a blast, but I was also excited for adventure, so off I went!

To-finland by kozispoon

Working as a remote employee and one that is overseas is definitely a learning experience. There are timezones to consider, invoices to fill out, paychecks that only come once a month, and taxes you had to figure out yourself! It took a little getting used to.

For as much as I poke fun at it, I wouldn't of traded the experience for anything. I got much closer to the other remote CEA members like y2jenn, realitysquared and godofodd and hassled them with my incessant questions of which they all graciously obliged. Thanks you guys. I never would of made it as a remote employee without your know-how!

After a year, I returned stateside, just north of dA's LA offices and am there to this day, working hard!

 I love that throughout it all, deviantART has been a constant, not only as an incredible community, but as the most unique, zany and fulfilling job I've ever had the pleasure of having. I'm so glad I was here for dA's 11th birthday and am doubly stoked to be tossing confetti as it makes it to 14. Onwards and upwards deviantART. Can't wait to see what the future has in store for your story and mine! :party:
