Q&A with Tyler

Hailing from Denver, Tyler is our Texture Artist Intern and holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Colorado.

What inspires you?
Music, cinema, and stories have always connected people, and I find these connections inspiring.

Why did you pick a career in animation?
I always wanted to share awesome stories and experiences with other people.

Thoughts about Portland?
Portland is a city with many hats. (Literally & figuratively)

Favorite treat?
A Clif Bar and some cold green tea


When will you know that you’re successful?
When I no longer view "success" as an objective measure and, rather, live in the moment with no expectations or inhibitions.  

What’s your biggest failure so far?
Probably this afternoon when I tried parallel parking my car four times.

What is your most prized possession?
I have a pretty sick drum set at home named Pearly.

What is the future of animation?
I think virtual and augmented reality is going to see more demand in the next few years.
