Gloria Kum

Growing up watching multitude of animations through her dad’s large VHS collection, it strongly influenced Gloria to the person she is today. Through her compassion and selflessness, she’s eager to learn more about the industry in hopes to inspire those who were in her shoes as a kid – a child filled with wonder and joy on the expressive medium. In March 2021, Gloria started her animation career as a Production Assistant for SpongeBob SquarePants and The Patrick Star Show. A year later, she then rolled dice as a Design Production Coordinator at Titmouse for The Legend of Vox Machina. At the end of 2022, she then pivoted to Riot Games as an Administrative Assistant to the Head of Creative. Now being in the gaming industry, she hopes to utilize all her experiences to build the skills to nurture and develop projects to inspire current and future generations.
