Born in Chicago, IL. Iris moved back to Taiwan when she was three-years-old. She watched Shrek the first time when she was in middle school and was greatly inspired by this animation. Therefore, Iris moved back to the states alone when she was sixteen. From then, her life-long pursuit of working in the animation industry began...
Iris studied Computer Science and Mathematical Science in undergrad. After her graduation, she worked as a back-end programmer. Because of her love for animation, Iris returned to school and is currently a second-year student at the Entertainment Technology Center(ETC) at Carnegie Mellon University.
At ETC, Iris took up the role as an artist and learned 2D/3D art pipeline. This experience had inspired her to pursue a career as Technical Director, where she can combine her knowledge of Computer Science and Art.
Iris currently residing in Pittsburgh, PA with her two cats Momo and Mew.
