Personal Quote:

I'll always love sound, but sound comes at the end of the process. And I went to film school, I wanted to make films, and I was yearning to get involved at the beginning of the process. Sound is great, but there's so much that happens before then. So it's really just due to having a lucky break and an opportunity that Pixar gave me at an opportune time in my life. I was very lucky.
