I grew up moving all over the country and am now digging my roots in Oakland, CA. I graduated BYU in 2010 and participated in many of our student films. If I had to pick one, Dreamgiver was the student film that helped me get a real feel for what the industry would be like and helped me decide to turn a bit more towards shading than lighting. I started working at CTL (best student animation job ever!), landed a summer lighting internship with Pixar, pivoted on graduation and started working for DreamWorks PDI as a Shading Artist. Then after DreamWorks’s Bay Area studio was shuttered I was blessed to find a way back to Pixar! Now I’m the Shade/Groom Lead on an upcoming film called Elio.

I grew up in Michigan, and met Brent as a teenager touring the animation program. I started in 2012 and graduated in 2015. I worked at Disney Interactive, Moonbot, and Psyop the year after I graduated, and ended up at Pixar the beginning of 2016. I've worked on some great projects in my time at Pixar, and hope to continue making more.

I grew up smack in the middle of the country in Kansas, in the Kansas City metro area. Through a turn of fate I ended up living in Utah and studying at BYU. I graduated in 2003 and worked on Lemmings. Since graduating I've worked for Digital Domain, Dreamworks two times, Pixar two times and now Meta.
