Synopsis: A macho toy arcade prize is quick to judge a young girl who wants to win him, and goes on a life changing journey in attempt to stop her from winning enough tickets and taking him home.
My very first vivid memory that is related to pursuing art as a career is associated with the first time I watched Toy Story at the theater when I was 6 years old. The story and animation won over my heart and I knew I wanted to be a part of making things like that. What inspires my work the most are little moments in life, interactions between people and little nuances that make people unique. I work to eliminate the stereotype of animation being only for children, as I believe that people of all ages can enjoy and appreciate a good, honest character performance. It is my mission to reach people all around the world, and open their minds to different views and opinions. I also love toys and soft serve ice cream.
