Spongebob Squarepants: Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom 
Screen Novelties

For the Spongebob Squarepants: Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom stop motion Halloween special, I worked as a Jr. Puppet Fabricator at Screen Novelties. I had the wonderful opportunity of cleaning, repairing, painting, and fabricating puppets as well as doing Last Looks. I will always have a soft spot for Spongebob and his Bikini Bottom pals, after working on this special.

One of the greatest moments of my career was being interviewed by Nickelodeon about my role on SpongeBob SquarePants: Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom! As a kid, I was obsessed with all of the behind the scenes and making of footage on Disney and Nickelodeon. I dreamed of being a part of animation and loved seeing how my favorite animated productions were created. You can find me at 2:43 and a few other moments in the above video.
