Amanda is an 2D animator and visual development artist based in NYC. Her notable clients include Nickelodeon, Google, Android, Macy's, Netflix, Herbal Essence, Smart Car EQ, McDonald's, and Amplify Education.
Other than doing the artsy stuff, she spends her free time showering her cats with unrequited love, playing video games, and taste-testing hot sauce. But because she is human and needs sunlight, she also enjoys venturing outside looking for hole-in-the-wall cafes where she can read a book or document her adventures with a pencil and sketchbook.
