Personal Quote:

I wanted to make sure that 'Up' wasn't a 3D movie about a man who sails his house to South America. It's a movie about an old man who sails his house to South America that also happens to be in 3D. So the first thing is always the story. See more »

He started at Pixar at the age of 21, and began work the day after his college graduation, the tenth employee the company hired, and its third animator. See more »

Trademark:
