Deanna has always had a fascination regarding the folklore and mythology of different cultures. Japanese anime was a way of learning those tales and one of the driving factors to get into Animation. However it wasn’t until she visited the Microsoft Campus to visit her brother, that her interest in the field was fully awakened. While getting the tour of the campus, she was shown the different departments and even the audio recording rooms. Spotting a pile of wood in one, her brother explained that they would smash it to get broken wood sound effects. From then on she knew she wanted to be apart of the world of animation.
After being apart of the DAC, she obtained many general skills involving animation but her favorite is making the models. The act of creating the foundations to something great and beautiful is what she enjoys the most in this field.
