What were some of your favorite projects at Disney?
Vampirina is this Disney Junior show, I call her my girl because she came out of a character I worked on. I also did bathroom signs for Christmas. We covered the normal bathroom signs with customized Disney bathroom signs: Minnie for women’s and Mickey for men’s. It’s super cool. We do that for every event, like Saint Patrick’s Day, Christmas, Halloween. It’s fun.
