Hi, I'm Kaitlin! ❀
Growing up in Kansas, I watched animated shows and movies all the time to escape my uneventful reality. Bored out of my mind, I was taken outside of myself into fantastical worlds and fascinating characters. However, I soon came to realize that great storytelling was a reflection of life. As Robert McKee writes in STORY: "Story isn't a flight from reality but a vehicle that carries us on our search for reality, our best effort to make sense out of the anarchy of existence."
Today, animation is my vessel for storytelling! I love to manifest the stories I observe around me into 3D. Animation is the way that I express love for our beautiful world!
Now, you can find me animating at various studios in NYC — previously Free Range VFX, Jabimation, HOPR, and Public Display of Affection and currently at Hornet. I will be available for work beginning Monday, October 9!
When I'm not animating, I help organize events at Asians in Animation. You can also find me wandering around the city, watching movies, reading too many books at once, and eating to my heart's content!
