I’m very happy to announce that the staff here at Upcoming Pixar continues to grow! We are so lucky to now be joined by Maya and Karla.
I’ve known the two of them for years. They are two of the most passionate Pixar fans, in addition to being creative and really talented writers. You may recognize Karla from her lovely essay on Coco that was featured here in 2018. We’re looking forward to more great work like that from each of them.
Read on to learn some more about them!
Hello everyone, my name is Karla! Like most people, I was introduced to Pixar at an early age starting with Finding Nemo; however, I became enamored with their films in 2010 after seeing Wall-E and Up for the first time. Animation soon became my defining passion and ultimately, it led me to a career in technology. After graduating college in 2019, I had the amazing opportunity to work at Pixar as a Systems intern for the summer! I’m very excited to be a part of the Upcoming Pixar team and contribute as a fellow fan.”
Hi, I’m Maya and I’ve been unabashedly in love with the animation medium all my life. My
appreciation started in early childhood, helped in no small part by the feature films and shorts
from Pixar Studios. It’s difficult for me to pick an absolute favorite Pixar film when so many of
them feature the kinds of characters and themes I love best. I’ve always enjoyed writing about
the magic of the animated films’ art and stories so I’m excited to share my perspective and be
part of the Upcoming Pixar team!
We hope you’ll join us in congratulating and welcoming them to Upcoming Pixar!
