Presenter: Alex Maher
Full Time Senior Disney Character Artist
From a very young age Alex Maher knew what he wanted to do with his life, work for the mouse. The question was, how to make that dream a reality.
Alex grew up in sunny Miami and he utilized his spare time putting pen to paper. He drew incessantly, trying to mimic the characters he had grown up loving. Even when he joined the Navy the country quickly assessed his true talent and put him to work as an illustrator/draftsman, but his ultimate desire to draw for Disney still looked like an impossible goal.
During Alex’s hour long speaker series event he’ll trace his inspirational journey from artistic ‘outsider’ to his current goal as Sr Character Artist at the Disney Company. Alex will talk about the passion and drive it takes to succeed, and the joy of finally obtaining your pixie dust filled dreams in the land of Mickey Mouse.
