Q. Why this profession?
I’ve always loved cartoons since childhood, and I wanted to make cartoons one day.
Q. When did you realize that this is what you wanted to do?
I can’t say exactly when, but movies like Toy Story, Tarzan and Looney Toons definitely provided the right amount of inspiration for me. I guess I was 15 or 16 years old when I realized I want to get into animation.
Q. What’s the best part about what you do?
The most rewarding part is getting to see your work on the big screen and enjoying people watching it. I believe an animator is one of the few professions where you get to play God and give emotion to something… out of nothing! Plus, I get to wear shorts to work.

If there was a downside, it would be the long hours of work that keeps me away from friends and family. But my passion keeps me going.

First, you have to love movies. You must be ready to learn forever and most importantly, you must be able to observe the world around you.
Q. What’s your typical day like?
Wake up in the morning, get ready for work, plan my shots and tasks for the day, watch movies and games for references, draw and animate fun cartoon characters doing crazy stuff the whole day and then get back home to catch up with friends for dinner and/or a movie…
