I joined Unity in Marin in September 2011. I quickly gravitated to the Youth and Family Ministry group volunteering to lead all the kids in holiday projects, first making ornament for the Narthex Christmas tree then making gingerbread houses. It was a great fit and I began teaching UniTEENS twice a month in January 2012. I have spent over 20 years in the animation film industry and I have had the privilege of working for Walt Disney Feature Animation, Pixar Animation Studios and Lucasfilm Animation. I have been involved in the making of many wonderful animated feature films including Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Toy Story 2, Monsters, Inc, Finding Nemo, and The Incredibles. Prior to my animation career I had a wonderful time working in theatre as a production manager. I graduated from University of California Santa Barbara with a BA in Theatre and did one year of graduate studies in theatre set design at Carnegie-Mellon.
