What is your proudest achievement while working at Imageworks?
I’m very proud of establishing my leadership role here at Imageworks as a compositing supervisor, where I not only continue to grow my own artistic talents and abilities, but I get to help others who are newer to the craft develop into great artists and become valued contributors to the movies we make. I'm proud to be a member of our production teams here at Sony, who really put an emphasis on artists having the opportunity to contribute creatively to everything we make.
What inspired you to become involved in making movies?
My inspiration to get involved with making movies comes from the desire to be apart of the creative process to create art from almost nothing. I've always enjoyed the process of developing imagery with raw elements from photography, various color mediums or cg. Using my imagination to build something with my own hands is something I've gravitated to since I was a little kid.
