Anna Prosser Robinson creates and curates original video content as Creative Producer for Twitch Studios: the content production arm of the world’s leading video platform and community for gamers. Anna came to Twitch as a producer via the acquisition of GoodGame Agency, previously known as Evil Geniuses, which she joined in 2011 when the company was a nascent professional gaming team. Inspired by her experiences as the only woman in the office and gaming communities at large, she co-founded Misscliks, a live-streaming network and online community dedicated to "uplifting geeks and gamers" by providing exposure to women role models.
Upon joining Twitch, this passion for inclusivity also led Anna to form the internal Twitch “Inclusivity Group,” a grassroots organization of Twitch staffers across departments who work together to further inclusivity and diversity on Twitch as a platform and in the online gaming and content community. Anna was proudly involved in the first ever “Inclusivity City” activation at TwitchCon 2016, and has been involved in many initiatives on diversity in gaming, some even taking her as far as the White House.
Anna is perhaps most often recognized publicly as an on-camera personality specializing in gaming and esports content, recently hosting PAX East on Twitch and “Heroes of the Dorm” on ESPN. In her free time, Anna role plays as a cast member of multiple live-streamed Dungeons & Dragons shows, and broadcasts on her own Twitch channel under the username “AnnaProsser.” With an educational background in Speech Communication and International Studies, Anna is thrilled by the opportunities presented by the geek and gaming world to make a positive impact on global culture, and hopes that this panel may inspire others to join that epic quest.
