Mark studied character animation at the famous California Institute of the Arts. His award-winning student film, Extra Crispy, caught the eye of Pixar Animation Studios in 1997.
Since then, Mark has lent his talents to A Bug's Life, Toy Story 2, Monsters Inc, and the Incredibles. He developed the character of Dory as a Directing Animator on Finding Nemo, and most recently worked with Brad Bird as a Supervising Animator on Disney-Pixar’s Oscar® winning film, Ratatouille. Raised on old Hollywood musicals and Disney cartoons, Mark enjoys emphasizing character and entertainment in his work. He feels strongly that hand crafted character animation still has the potential to push the boundaries of entertainment.
