I work as a story artist and facial animation designer at Laika Entertainment in Portland, Oregon. Prior to joining Laika, I wandered the continent as a vagrant, self-taught 2D animator hocking my drawings to any studio that would buy them, leading to a pinball-like existence that eventually landed me at my goal, animated features. I do not necessarily recommend this strategy to anyone else with this goal, but I did get to experience bunch of cities, though, so that was pretty entertaining, which is nice.
