I am a Junior Staff Animator at Blue Sky Studios, currently working on Rio 2. I also temped there on Ice Age 4 and Epic. What a fun place to work!
Before that, I broke into feature by animating at Rhythm & Hues for Alvin & The Chipmunks 3, and at Sony for the Smurfs before that.
I grew up in southern Rhode Island and went to school at Hampshire College in Amherst, MA, graduating in 2003. I quickly got a job at Anzovin Studio in Northampton, MA, leaving after five years to enroll in Animation Mentor.
I like to travel and have spent a lot of time kayaking in Florida, and driving to almost all of the states in the US, mostly for outdoorsy reasons.
