Andrew Gordon has been an animator for Pixar Animation Studios for 20 years and has also helped educating the new generation of animators and storytellers at Pixar. He studied animation in Vancouver, NJ and NY and has previously worked with Warner Bros. Classics. He is also a member of the Academy of Motion Picture, Arts and Sciences.

Other than Andrew’s talent for animation, he helped create some of the most famous offices in the world: The Love Lounge and Lucky 7 Lounge. Andrew discovered a secret path from his office at Pixar that lead to a hidden room. He decided to decorate it with lava lamps and a bar, and now it is one of the most famous offices and one of Steve Jobs’ favorite places to hang out in. 

In Andrews keynotes and workshops he takes his knowledge and experience from the animation world and transfers it to the business world. Storytelling and having a creative innovative company culture can prove to be extremely efficient for many businesses. Andrew has worked with huge companies like Facebook, Pinterest and Deloitte to help leaders and managers implement strategies that show results in the long run.
