3D Graphics, Illustration, Software Engineering, Game Development

Hi I'm Aimei (pronounced I-may). I’m a Technical Director in cloth tailoring and simulation at Pixar Animation Studios, and have worked on Inside Out, Finding Dory, The Good Dinosaur, Coco, and Incredibles 2. I’m currently doing non-cloth-related look development for an upcoming movie.

I like to make art in my free time - traditional, digital, and CG. It’s fun to experiment with technology and different techniques to create something interesting and pretty! I hope to keep improving :)

I graduated from Brown University in 2013 with a double major in Computer Science and Physics.  In the past I've interned at the Space Telescope Science InstitutePixar Undergraduate Program, and the Johns Hopkins Materials Research Science and Engineering Center.  I was also a two-year teaching assistant for the computer animation classes CS125 and CS128 at Brown University.
