From the time Ali could pick up a pencil, art has made up the core of their life. It doesn't get any more committed than dressing up as a crayon, folks. (Yes, they picked that one out theirself, in case you were wondering.)
After graduating college with a Bachelor's in video game design, Ali landed their first big break at Jakks Pacific Inc. in 2013 where they worked on product design for Disney brands including Fairies, Sofia the First, Mainline and Marvel Tsum Tsum and Disney Princess.
In 2015, they transitioned to their current position as a Senior Visual Development Designer at Studio JP, a then budding content development division within Jakks Pacific Inc., where they have worn hats a-plenty including character and prop design, environment layout, and storyboarding.
In their free time, Ali still designs and sculpts. In 2014 they, with the help of Chito Arellano, began Bon Bun Bakery, a line of handmade collectible art toys that smash bunnies and tasty treats together. When they aren't creating, they spend weekends at the archery range and finds any excuse to work with horses.
