Position: Art Intern
Hometown: Springfield, IL
School & Major: Animation at Massachusetts College of Art and Design
What brought you to FableVision?
I heard about the studio from one of my professors, so I decided to check it out. Since there aren’t too many narrative/character based animation studios in the Boston area, it definitely peaked my interest. When I saw they had an internship program, I immediately applied!
What part of your job are you most excited about and what do you hope to learn in your position?
I’m really excited to work on the independent intern project. Now that I’ve learned a bit about how the studio goes about animating characters, I feel more confident and excited to put it into practice. I’m looking forward to learning more about how FableVision brings its characters and stories to life!
If you could add something to the Wall of Inspiration, what would you add?
There absolutely needs to be more Avatar: The Last Airbender merchandise on the Wall of Inspiration. That show is what brought me to this career path, and it’s an amazing reference and inspiration for any artist.
If you could pick three people from FableVision to join your bobsledding team for the Winter Olympics, who would you pick?
Of the people I’ve gotten to know so far from FableVision, I’d have to choose Hannah, Christina, and Keith. I feel like they collectively have enough energy to make a 10/10 bobsled team.
What song would you pair your figure skating routine to?
I would figure skate to Lily Allen’s cover of “Somewhere Only We Know,” only because it is soft, sweet, and makes me cry every time I listen to it. Although in hindsight, that may be an issue on the rink…
What would you win a gold medal in?
If I was actually an Olympic competitor, I’d probably do best at speed skating. I love moving at high speeds – or working fast at anything – so getting to fly around a rink all speedy would be…ideal.
Which Olympic athlete would you most want to meet?
I would want to meet Mirai Nagasu because seeing her land a triple axel during her ice skating routine was incredible. I am proud and happy for her.
