Heather SurprenantAbout Me

LIKE MOST KIDS GROWING UP IN THE 90’S, I ABSORBED SATURDAY MORNING CARTOONS WITH AN INTENSITY MATCHED ONLY BY MY LOVE TO DRAW. THAT STAYED WITH ME WELL INTO ADULTHOOD WHERE, WHEN WATCHING THE FEATURE FILM, “THE ROAD TO EL DORADO”, I FINALLY MADE UP MY MIND TO BECOME AN ANIMATOR.

FIVE YEARS LATER, I ATTENDED SAVANNAH COLLEGE OF ART & DESIGN TO MAJOR IN TRADITIONAL ANIMATION, WHILE ALSO LEARNING 3D AND DEVELOPING A DEEPER UNDERSTANDING FOR ILLUSTRATION. AFTER GRADUATING, I TRAVELED ALL OVER THE COUNTRY IN ORDER TO LEARN IN AN EVER GROWING, COMPETITIVE MARKET. I DOVE INTO MOTION GRAPHICS AND GRAPHIC DESIGN IN D.C IN 2010. I WAS INTRODUCED TO SOCIAL GAMING IN CHICAGO WITH ZYNGA/HIT IT RICH! IN 2011, AND WORKED IN SAN FRANCISCO TO REALLY PUT ALL MY SKILLS TO THE TEST AT IGT IN 2013 TO 2017.
