DREXEL AT PIXAR ANIMATION STUDIOS
BS/MS digital media ’11
My Greatest Accomplishment:
Making my way to Pixar. Contributing to films like “Brave,” which won a Golden Globe and an Oscar last year, and “Monsters University” has been an unforgettable experience for me. Seeing my name in the credits roll alongside some of the most talented artists in the animation industry is humbling. A great sense of accomplishment comes from seeing the joy that these films bring to families worldwide.
How Drexel Helped:
Some film directors believe that the best thing you can do on a set is develop a creative atmosphere that enables the entire crew to thrive. Drexel’s digital media program did exactly this throughout both my undergraduate and graduate studies. The faculty are truly passionate about new media in all forms. I was taught and essentially given unlimited access to all of the software that I use in my job today.
Where I’ll Be in Five Years:
I’ll be working just as hard to keep audiences smiling and coming back for more.
