What is your proudest achievement while working at Imageworks? 
The end of a show- all of them. I have that moment where I can sit with the crew and take a breath - then enjoy what we all helped our directors bring to life!

What inspired you to become involved in making movies?
Movies are a reflection of where we are in this universe - our culture, our history, and our fears and desires. I wanted to be a part of painting that picture. I am helping to tell that story.
