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