Sara is the account director for Character and brings to our work the production, management and story skills she learned in the film, comic book and advertising industries. Sara grew up in LA and, consequently, the film industry. She spent five years working in film production, juggling responsibilities as diverse as coordinating film premieres and managing an office building, before moving to Oregon to take a job with Dark Horse Comics, the third largest comics publisher in the U.S. Rather than ending her film career, the move to Portland and comic books actually kept her working in the movies as Dark Horse comic book heroes like Barb Wire, The Mystery Men and Hellboy made the transition from page to screen.
After a four-year stint with Dark Horse, Sara joined Will Vinton Studios (currently Laika) where she helped to manage the Studio’s television and feature film development efforts. It was in this capacity that she first met the rest of the Character team. Sara came to work for Character in the spring of 2003.
In her ongoing effort to use conflict as an asset in her life, she trains, competes, and coaches in the martial art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, serves an ambassador for the organization Girls in Gis, and has been appointed to her city’s new Equity, Inclusion, and Justice Steering Committee.
