I am writing today with some news that is difficult to share, but I wanted you to hear it from me: I will be leaving Blue Sky.
Two years ago we began the journey to elevate and evolve this vibrant studio. We embarked on a robust development slate, attracting new talent and pushing forward with technology to support the storytelling.
Blue Sky has always been a force for powerful family entertainment, and for the last 10 years I have
loved being a part of the family. While this is the end of my Blue Sky journey, I know that this studio will
continue to surpass the very high expectations we set out for ourselves.
Thank you for so many wonderful memories. I wish everyone the very best.
