DJ Nicke is a former Disney Animator with nearly 20 years of animation experience.
He taught himself traditional animation at the age of 12 after going on a tour of the Disney Animation Studio in Orlando, Florida.
When he was 13, he discovered computer animation, and by the age of 16 he had taught himself computer graphics and animation.
DJ became one of the youngest animators ever hired by Walt Disney Animation, and also one of their first computer animators. He achieved this, not because he was the most talented or most experienced, but because he knew how to stand out from the herd.
