Career of Barbara Dunkelman
Barbara Dunkelman initially became aware of the comedy sci-fi web series ‘Red vs. Blue’ when she spotted her elder brother and his friends watching it on the computer in their basement during her teenage years. She was immediately fascinated on the online series and signed up as a community member at the Rooster Teeth website in 2004 as a fan of Mario and Zelda. The website, which is known for its active online community, provided a safe haven for the adolescent girl who wanted to participate in all aspects of the web series.
She went to the Toronto Red vs. Blue (RvBTO) fan event the next year. She returned to the event in subsequent years, where she met and formed friends with a number of members of the community. She began working as a co-host and coordinator at fan gatherings in 2008. She also worked as a hostess for WatchMojo.com, a Canadian video content provider, for a few months in 2010. She attended the first Rooster Teeth Expo (RTX) in 2011 as the event’s volunteer coordinator.
With Rooster Teeth staffers Michael Jones, Ray Narvaez, Jr., Lindsay Jones, and Kerry Shawcross, as well as community members Andrew Blanchard, Mike Kroon, and Dylon Saramago, she co-founded the podcast show ‘Internet Box’ in September 2011. She quickly rose to the top of the Rooster Teeth community site’s most-followed members. In December of that year, she was hired as the company’s community manager, responsible for organizing RTX alongside Gustavo Sorola, one of the company’s founders. She was also in charge of establishing community features and maintaining the company’s social media platforms.
Beyond the Notoriety
Barbara Dunkelman, who began as a fan, not only became a paid employee, but also proved to be a great asset, performing voice acting, motion capture, and even script writing. In reality, she has achieved celebrity status as a result of her popularity.
A large number of fans devote time and effort to creating fan art and writing fan fiction about her. She is best known, though, for her awful puns, which have given her the moniker “Barbara Pun-kelman.”
She has been interested in video games and humor since she was a teenager, and she frequently expresses her pride in being a woman in the gaming and entertainment sector.
She’s been referred to as a “booth babe” on occasion, meaning that she was employed solely for her good looks. She calls herself a feminist and frequently speaks out against the unfair treatment of women on the internet and in the gaming industry. She is also not afraid to discuss her political opinions on the internet.
She is a Twitter follower of Justin Trudeau, the Prime Minister of Canada. In the 2016 US presidential election, she has been outspoken in her support for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
