What is your proudest achievement while working at Imageworks?
My proudest achievement isn't just something I did, but instead what our recruiting team does. Each year, with only two recruiters and one coordinator, we manage to hire between 200-500 artists. 2017, in particular, was one of our biggest yet with 631 hires! We are a small but mighty recruiting team and I am so proud to be a part of it.
What inspired you to become involved in making movies?
I was fortunate to grow up in an entertainment-centric family. My father, uncle, grandfather, and great grandfather all worked in sound design for motion pictures and television. I knew that I would work in this field in one way or another. While working in sound did not interest me, animated movies were always something that appealed to me.
