about Sapphire

Photography By Jess Kovic

I am an Animator, Host, and Video Producer
who appreciates great animation & storytelling.

Storytelling, in all its many forms
– animation, music, dance, theater, film –
has been my passion my entire life.

As an awkward child, I drew the book covers
for novels I wanted to write
and gave all my stuffed animals
rich backstories and family histories.

a handful of the aforementioned book covers. common themes: sisters, super powers, and nonsensical names.

Growing up with Disney films and Saturday morning cartoons,
I’ve always been mesmerized by the magic of film & animation.
So when I discovered that it was an actual career option,
I knew that’s the world I had to be a part of.

And now, I am a freelance Animator in Los Angeles,
spooky storyteller for Snarled,
host & creator of a new podcast Animated Perspectives,
part-time teacher at Loyola Marymount University,
a psychic-in-training,
and a crazy dog lady.

I just love spreading myself thin, you guys.

Even as a child I was a crazy dog lady.
