Disney will shutdown Bluesky Studios

 Okay I've officially gone a whole year without updating this blog. I actually think blogs are outdated now? Everyone's on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook? Maybe not FB.... LOL. Well I am. although I don't post too often on there either. I mostly post industry related info on my twitter... so if you are so included go check it out and follow me! You can be one if the 300 peeps there! 

At any rate. Today is a bit of a sad day. Disney closed down Bluesky studios and a lot of my close friends are now out of work. Everyone at that studio is super talented and they have made some of the most memorable films of my generation. Ice Age was a true groundbreaking franchise. I hope we get to see these characters again someday.

Back in Action!

There have been so many updates and changes happening since my last post almost two years ago. Where do I begin?

I'll start with my adventures in the Tech world. I spent the last couple of years at Snapchat creating entertaining story experiences using their bitmoji IP. We created original content for Universal with Grinch and Minions, Disney Parks, Aquaman, Superman, Star Wars and McDonalds to name a few.

The experience at Snapchat was incredible. We got to create a team of high end artists and animators to being these lenses to life on your phone! If you want to learn more check out this article which talks a little about the lens we created for McCafe! https://www.adweek.com/digital/mcdonalds-sponsored-a-snapchat-bitmoji-that-steals-your-coffee-in-augmented-reality/

More recent news: I started a new job at my dream studio PIXAR! I've been at the studio now for a couple of months and am absolutely in awe and love.



More to come so please stay posted!

Online Interviews


As promised here is a list of online interviews. I receive a variety of request from students who'd like more information about my experience and career in animation. I would love to respond to each person individually but unfortunately I just don't have the necessary time. I'm hoping this will be a good alternative option!

Adventure Year

Hi to those who've continued to follow my blog. It's been a year since I last posted. I can't believe it. Well there's lots to catch up on!

I've spent the last year working on Target Holiday commercial, Guardians of the galaxy Vol. 2, and now animating on the Emoji Movie. What a ride! I'll post pics and links in the next day.

I've also received a few request for personal interviews. I wish I could accommodate everyone, but I'm afraid there just isn't enough time. So, with that in mind I will be posting links on this site of existing interviews I've given to several websites like "Animation Nation" & "Lady Animators".  Stay tune for those.
