About Peggy Forde
Hello! My name is Peggy, and I’m from New Jersey. I’m currently living in the Los Angeles area, working as an esports observer for Blizzard Entertainment and the Overwatch League.
Previously, I was the Head of Production for Elo Hell Esports and a freelance in-game observer. I’ve observed the Fusion Homecoming Showcase, ESPN Collegiate Esports Championship, Overwatch Contenders Trials North America, and many others. You can take a look at some of my work here.
I also used to be employed full time as the Video Production Specialist for EDP Soccer. I created promotional / creative marketing material and content for the company, mainly involving editing and animations. I mainly used Premiere and After Effects for this position. You can see some of my work here.
My skills include editing both photos and video on Premiere Pro (CC, CS6 and above), Final Cut (7 and X). I’m experienced with Adobe Creative Cloud (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, etc.) and I’ve worked with Avid Media Composer.
As for cameras and broadcast hardware, I own a Canon Rebel T5 and a Sony HXRT-NX100, but I’ve also used various other Canon models as well as other brands, like Nikons and Samsung. As the former Technical Manager of the Rowan Television Network, I’m highly skilled in Panasonic ENGs like the HPX170, HPX370, HPX500 and HVX200. I’m also adept in the Tricaster 455 and Portacom systems.
My journalism experience involves GosuGamers and Winston’s Lab, where I work as a freelance journalist. Be it covering events or covering a new patch, I’ve done it all with these two organizations. I’ve also interviewed players and managers about their respective events/teams.
I am currently not interested in any positions at this time.
