"I found out about animation while studying Graphic Design at Woodbury and fell in love. I switched majors and never looked back! I've worked on short film projects, commercials, The Simpsons Movie, Princess and the Frog, and now an upcoming Winnie the Pooh film. It was the professors at Woodbury who really made my education. By learning about the magic of animation from those who had done it, I was inspired to pursue it myself. It was those lessons and connections that allowed me to find work doing what I love. By being part of a smaller community at Woodbury, I was able to have more of an individual impact, and receive more attention at the classroom level. It also helps that Woodbury is located in Burbank, right at the heart of the animation industry!"
