How did you get your start in the animation industry?

My father, being an avid autograph collector and knowing that I was a fan of animation, took me with him to meet John K. (Creator of Ren and Stimpy) so that he could get some things signed while at the same time, introducing me to someone I looked up to as a kid. My dad ended up telling him how interested I was in animation and how much I liked to draw, that John’s producer who was there at the time asked if I wanted to help out around Spümco during the summer as an internship sort of deal. I ended up doing that, and it was a great experience that helped push me harder towards working in animation.

What’s the best thing about your job?

Being able to sneak in designs of my family and friends into the shows that I work on! ;)
