Animal Jam Spotlight: Kris Johnson

Hi Jammers! ^-^ Today is Tuesday, which means it's time another volume of the Animal Jam Spotlight series!

In this post, we're going to be spotlighting the co-founder and COO of WildWorks, the company that created Animal Jam. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome... Kris Johnson!

*claps*

Okay, okay. Let's just get to the point here.

Like I said before, Kris Johnson is the co-founder and COO (chief operating officer) of WildWorks. Before he joined WildWorks in August 2003, he worked for Beyond Games, another video game developer. Then, from August 2003 to May 2012, he was the technology director for WildWorks. In spring of 2012 he became the COO and studio director of WildWorks and has kept this job in place since then.

"With over 20 years of experience building great creative teams and successful digital entertainment, Kris not only envisions company-defining products, he applies his deep design and engineering expertise to actually build them. He is the creator and driving force behind Animal Jam, and is involved in all aspects of its worldwide operation, including the latest expansion of the blockbuster children's property to mobile devices." - LinkedIn profile

He and Clark Stacey both graduated from the University of Utah. ^.^

I hope you guys enjoyed today's spotlight! Have a great day!

  2. KIDS I HAVE CREATED A MOVEMENT IN AJ, THE ADVENTURE MOVEMENT. READ ON TO SAVE AJ JAM.

    Right, kids. In 2014, AJHQ left us with Turning the tide. Then arose the evil seasonal adventures. They destroyed Jamaasian adventures, leaving it to your humble chicken AJkraft to write an uber long fanfic that needs to come to le internet.

    But fanfictions cannot satisfy most people, such as WisteriaMOON who humbly states that it is for nerds. And because the alphas are too busy creating contests on the Daily Explorer, we need new heroes... Oh great I am becoming the narrator dude from Minecraft Story mode... Darn nobody here even plays that game lol

    ANYHOW.
    Grab a gazillion buddies and play le adventures as much as you can! Spread the news to famous jammers who can connect to AJHQ and thus make Jamaa great again. Vote AJKraft 2016. Trust me, its in good hands.

    Anyhow, if you could, whoever reads this, post this and share it. Obviously not the parts that are for humor that isn't funny, but the actual movement.

    TIME TO FINALLY GET ANOTHER ADVENTURE, NOT JUST DIAMOND SHOP ANIMALS AND DENS :D

    ~~Le fabulous AJKraft, who soon will not be meganfurryfun37 because eye am changing my username :)
