Ellen is a doer of many things. Before joining Titmouse as their artistic recruiter, she spent the last 5 years as a director/designer for clients such as Nickelodeon, Katy Perry, Facebook, NBA, TED-Ed to name a few. She teaches at the School of Visual Arts, fostering the development of award-winning student films. She is also the co-lead of the Women in Animation NYC Chapter where she organizes informative presentations with practical advice in order to better prepare artists for the industry. Having been on both sides of the table, as an artist hustling for work and a director hiring for projects, Ellen brings unique insights to recruiting for the animation industry.
