Today we invite you to get to know Danae DelBalso! Danae grew up in East Greenbush, NY, and went to study advertising and communications at Emerson College. After that, she worked for several ad agencies as a producer before moving to XVIVO.
Danae is married to Nick, an Albany firefighter, and together they have two children (Giuliana ‘G’ and Jacob ‘Buster Cheeks’), both under the age of 3! Danae enjoys ‘Glamping’ RV camping, travel, and spending time with her lovely family. If you complain in front of her daughter ‘G’, she’ll tell you: “cry me a river and I will buy you a boat!”
Danae enjoys Japanese food, crab rangoons, and tagalongs. When she’s not optimizing process and making sure everything stays organized, you can find her relaxing in front of some good ol’ reality TV.
Introducing Jenn Platt!
Jenn has called a few places home including New York, North Carolina, Texas, Colorado, California, Florida, Pennsylvania, England, Ontario, and most recently, Connecticut.
In school, Jenn studied Medical Illustration, English, and Biology, and spent her time in NYC doing medical animation and watching a lot of obscure theater. She also took excursions via the IKEA ferry to Brooklyn for relaxing afternoons of Swedish meatballs and weird lamps.
Jenn writes science fiction in her free time and takes pride in the origami she makes out of publisher rejection letters. She hopes to one day get a dog and train it to ride a Roomba.
XVIVO XPOSED continues this week with Katherine (KC) Fallon!
KC comes to us from Springfield, MA, birthplace of Dr. Seuss. She studied Medical Illustration at RIT and joined XVIVO straight out of college.
While in school, KC was a lab assistant in the Hematology Department at Baystate Medical Center, learning probably a bit too much about body fluids.
KC plays a mean game of soccer, basketball, dodgeball, and kickball. A self-reported breakfast syrup junkie, Netflix binger, and N64 enthusiast, KC likes spending her free time learning about the wonders of astrophysics. Like Roz, KC agrees that the Samoa is by far the best Girl Scout cookie.
She eventually plans on somehow getting a dog the size of a horse.
Introducing Brett Murrah!
A native of Connecticut, Brett has lived in the town of Monroe since he was two. In school he studied graphic design and art history, and has worked thereafter as both an animator and a licensed massage therapist.
Some of Brett’s favorite things include: video games, zombies, zombie-themed video games, kale, kale-themed video games (?), and zip-lining. His favorite shows are Survivor and The Walking Dead, and he hopes for the day those two shows combine into one.
Fun fact: Brett first learned 3D on an Amiga computer, before his software of choice (LightWave) was even a stand-alone application.
Brett spends most of his time waiting in anticipation of his regular trips to Virginia Beach.
We continue our showcase this week with our Head of Production, Roz!
Rosalyn “Roz” Quinton is a native Jersey girl, but has spent the last decade and a half living in Connecticut. Roz studied mass communications and marketing at Quinnipiac, and worked as a producer at a stop-motion studio as well as at a couple of local news stations before ending up at XVIVO. She’s been with us for over eight years now!
Roz lives with her husband of six years and their two adorable pets: Tank, the 4-year-old ketchup-packet-eating French bulldog, and Tophie, a 13-year-old cat.
Roz’s parallel parking skills are unparalleled, as are her scrapbooking abilities. She is an avid pinner on pinterest, a Zumba enthusiast, and enjoys baking and being crafty. Her favorite Girl Scout cookie is the Samoa.
