What is your proudest achievement while working at Imageworks?
Finding the kitchen was a surprisingly difficult task, but I navigated this challenge like a pro and was rewarded with a refreshing (but luke-warm) cup of tea. #Proud
What inspired you to becoming involved in making movies?
I always liked animated features as a kid, especially stop motion/claymation. Then I became interested in Visual Effects, largely aided by the movies Superman, ALIENS, TERMINATOR 2, and STAR WARS.
