Danielle Feinberg

Danielle Feinberg began her career at Pixar Animation Studios in February 1997. As she worked her way from an entry level technical job to one of the top creative positions, she crewed many of Pixar’s feature films, including Toy Story 2, Monsters, Inc., Finding Nemo and The Incredibles. Danielle was director of photography for lighting on Disney•Pixar’s Academy Award-winning films WALL•E, Brave and Coco. Danielle’s love of combining computers and art began when she was 8, and first programmed a Logo turtle to create images. She eventually earned a degree in computer science from Harvard University. In addition to her Pixar work, she works with teenage girls, encouraging them to pursue coding, math and science by demonstrating how to create magic by combining art and technology.
