Meet the Ukie team: Kirstie Russell

What do you do at Ukie?

My main role at Ukie is the day-to-day running of the office but I always have a few projects on the go. One of those projects I’m working on is helping Ukie go carbon net zero by the end of 2022.

What made you want to work in the games industry?

I never thought about working in the games world before joining the Ukie team, but there are no regrets here! It’s such an exciting industry that never stops moving forward. It’s great to be part of it.

What are you playing at the moment?

With a toddler keeping me busy, I haven’t got a lot of time but always up for a game of Rush Team during my lunch break.

What do you do in your spare time, apart from playing games?

Really enjoy looking for dinner recipes to try out even though I’m not the greatest of cooks. Sitting in front of the telly, watching old British comedies is a favourite past time as well 😊

Do you have a pet? (Show us a picture!) If not, what pet would you like to have one day?

No pets right now but grew up with Boxer dogs which I miss so much – event the drooling! So, would love to adopt a couple of them at some point.
