When Madaline was a kid, she had a flip book of Cinderella’s tattered dress turned into a beautiful ball gown. The flip book eventually had to be thrown away because she flipped it so much. Years later, when her high school art teacher talked to her about all the different possibilities in digital art, her career choice became clear, and she started animating at Columbia College Chicago.

Madaline, who specializes in Illustrator, After Effects, and Premiere, is always looking for an easier, better way to do something, whether it’s becoming more efficient with storyboarding or organizing and planning her projects. Her ability to put herself in her clients’ shoes has not only helped produce many successful projects, but she also won a Telly Award for a video she animated for one of WireBuzz’s clients. And it’s also worth mentioning she won honors for a Dunkin’ Donuts cup decoration contest.

Madaline is the mom of a busy toddler, and when she can carve out time, she likes to paint, draw, and attend storytelling events. She also loves cooking Indian food and even makes her own graram masala.
