It's that time of year again! We are building mocha's annual customer demo reel. Contact maryp@imagineersystems.com for info!

Have you worked on any amazing projects this year? Has mocha helped you get the job done? We'd really love to show off your footage on our customer reel at trade shows! We will add your logo to your work (please send separately for edit/size consistency) and your name in the credits and show off your work at places like IBC, NAB, and Siggraph.

Help us make this year's reel even more awesome than last years. (Last Year's great customer reel can be found here: https://vimeo.com/64081138 )

Story

mocha Pro Product Specialist, Evangelizing mocha to artists all over the world
Introduction

When I graduated from college I decided to take a risk and move across the country. I was following my heart and jobs, and LA seemed perfect. It was far enough from home to have a new start and packed with the resources I needed to have a creative career. My family is filled with supportive artists who put me through SCAD and I had a marvelous teacher, Mrs. Mays, who was a huge influence on me. She put my work in shows and privately sent me and my twin sister to drawing classes on her own time. I wouldn’t have made it here without them.

Since transplanting to Los Angeles in 2005, I have been a stereoscopic artist, matte painter, cleanplate artist, illustrator, designer, and proficient rotopainter, and an actress in short films and new media projects. I currently work as a Product Specialist for Imagineer Systems, evangelizing Mocha's planar tracker to studios and artists across the world. 

I like to share. I think that is why I have gravitated to teaching artists about software techniques. I feel like I won the "job lottery" because of mocha's down-to-earth corporate culture. I love to work with new artists. I get to engage more of their creative skills and less of their busy-work skills. I can't do the same exact thing day in and day out; being a cog in a cubicle is not me at all.

I am happy when I feel useful so I craft in my spare time: usually handmade costumes, paintings, props, and flower arrangement gifts. Being a part-time actress and writer, I make my own content as a creative lead. I also create freelance illustrations. For entertainment I play a lot of MMO RPGs, Tabletops, and I am an avid LARPer; which has lead to incredible friends. I like LA but I do miss the old oak trees, the lightning bugs, and the warm, humid evenings of the South. 

In a few years, I would like to be training other product specialists as we grow. If you’d like to work together or you’d like a demo for your company please contact me and we’ll talk about your needs and solutions.

Specialties

Professional, creative, social, driven. I like having a project and staying busy, but I also like to balance work with play. I excel at working with other people and finding new solutions to problems. I get along with everyone and bring life and personality to anything that I work on.
