How I got into the industry

I started out studying Asian Studies and Japanese, then briefly became a make-up artist before an opportunity as a production assistant at an animation studio arose. That turned out to be a great fit for me, and what was initially a Summer job led to a permanent role in Human Resources and 16 years in recruitment and talent development in animation and video games. I reached a point where I needed to push myself out of my comfort zone and take on the broader challenge of a studio operational, leadership role. That’s what got me to where I am now, General Manager of Cinesite’s Vancouver studio.
