My name's Audrey Geipel (pronounced "Guy-pull"). I'm a Midwesterner at heart, and after 6 years in Los Angeles, I decided to relocate to Minnesota so I could be closer to family.
I'm 2 years out of school with bachelor's degree in Applied and Computational Mathematics with an emphasis in Physics and a Minor in 3D Animation from the University of Southern California. That's a bit of a mouthful for one line on my resume, but it means that I have a background in a wide range of areas.
I previously worked at DreamWorks Animation as a Python Developer/Technical Resource Administrator, helping to manage the 24/7 render farm, troubleshooting render jobs, and coding in Python to help automate processes.
When I'm not working on a computer or watching a movie, I spend a good chunk of my free time in the kitchen trying new recipes or scoping out the best places to eat and get a coffee in my new city. You can read up on my various kitchen exploits at my blog: www.thebatterthickens.com.
My favorite animated films are WALL-E and Guillermo del Toro's Pinnochio, but Into the Spiderverse or Klaus are close contenders. I hate being asked to pick just one.
