Hello! My name is Alyssa Garoogian, and I'm a writer, storyboard artist, and animator. I am a graduate of the University of Central Florida (UCF) with a M.F.A. degree in Emerging Media: Animation and Visual Effects. I have a B.A. degree in Film, Video, and New Media with a minor in Studio Art from Florida Atlantic University. From 2015 - 2016 I interned at Walt Disney World through the Disney College Program, and from 2019 - 2020 I was a Jenkins Community Art Scholar at UCF.
I am a very driven individual who loves sharing new ideas and being energized by others' imaginations. Leading groups toward innovation is always exhilarating! After seeing The Spongebob Squarepants Movie in theaters in 2004, I never looked back in pursuit of my goal toward making people feel the same joy and inspiration I felt while watching that movie.
I love playing with different art styles and writing stories with goofiness, drama, and a lot of heart! Here's to the future!
