ELIZA "LIZ" CHINCARINI
a.k.a Eliza Kinkz
Liz is my classmate in the UCLA Animation Workshop.
She's a great animator. She animated the music video for the Death Cab for Cutie song "Your Heart is an Empty Room."
I learned the hard way that you should never come between Liz and her cupcakes:
|"HANDS OFF MY CUPCAKES!!!"|

I met Nate through Sam at UCLA. He and Sam were roommates for a while.
Nate is a super cool guy, and I seriously think that he and Sam would make a great couple (maybe even better than Sam and I) cuz they have so many common interests.
Nate and I get along really well because it turns out my doppelgänger, Jon Morley, was his best friend back in St. Louis.
MATT "FLYNNDINI" FLYNN
Matt Flynn is a super cool guy and a very talented animator. He's so talented in fact that Matt and a couple of his buddies are currently in negotiations with Cartoon Network to development a series.
GLEEN "TRIPP" MILLICAN III
He's also a damn fine DJ. He spun records all night long for the 2005 UCLA Festival of Animation and the faculty, staff & students all agreed that he was one of the best DJ's "The Prom" has ever had.

KURT WILLIAM MACDONALD
I've known Kurt since the 3rd Grade at Junipero Serra Elementary School.
Kurt was one of my roommates during my 3rd and 4th years of Undergrad at UCLA (Greg and Wen were my other roomies) and he was my roommate again during our first two years of Graduate School, though Kurt went to USC in the Interactive Media MFA program while I returned to UCLA for my MFA at the Animation Workshop. Right before our third year at grad school, Kurt moved out of the apartment and into Tripp's place while Sam moved in with me.
Kurt's a very creative guy and a man of principles (he's a vegan).
JAMES ELIZABETH WESLEY SUHR
a.k.a. "The Suhr" / "The Sir"
a.k.a. "JEWSer" / "Juicer"
(just don't call him "Jimmy")
James is my classmate in the UCLA Animation Workshop. He's an amazing artist and a hilarious goofball. He takes his sketchbook everywhere he goes.
He's integrated really well with all my other circles of friends, including Sam's crew, because he's so damn funny and everyone loves him.
Rob is my classmate in the UCLA Animation Workshop. We started the MFA program together in the Fall 2002. No one from our year has graduated yet.
Rob's a hell of an artist and animator. He also used to be a Video Jockey under the name "VJ Fusion"

Régis is my classmate in the UCLA Animation Workshop.
He's a cool cat and a hell of an animator. Régis and his girlfriend Donna come over to watch anime all the time.
