Some of you might remember Soe Gschwind-Penski from last year’s gamescom where she was host and commentator for Blizzard Livestream as well as the World of Warcraft Legion Reveal. The 27-year-old was born in Basel, Switzerland. Meanwhile, she lives in Berlin where she works as a moderator and mediaa designer for the gaming agency Freaks 4U Gaming. Before this she worked as a radio presenter for two years and also comments various eSports events including games such as Star Craft II, Dota 2 or World of Warcraft.


Since the end of 2013, Soe focuses on Dota 2 for which she hosts events and organizes shows. In July 2015 Soe and her colleagues from Freaks 4U Gaming started the TV show on the German television channel NRW TV and rheinmaintv.


Just as creative as her work as a media designer, she spends her free time speed painting or fabricating detailed clay models. Want to know more about Soe’s multifaceted creative talents? Visit her YouTube channel Soembie- loves brains games!
