DANIELLE FEINBERG is the director of photography for lighting for Pixar Animation Studios. She began her career at Pixar in February 1997. As she worked her way from an entry level technical position to one of the top creative positions, she crewed many of Pixar’s feature films including “Monsters, Inc.,” “Finding Nemo” and “The Incredibles.” Feinberg was the director of photography for lighting on Disney•Pixar’s Academy Award®-winning films “WALL•E” and “Brave,” and is now working on Pixar’s upcoming film “Coco.” Feinberg’s love of combining computers and art began she was eight years old, and first programmed a Logo turtle to create images. This eventually led her to a degree in computer science from Harvard University. In addition to her Pixar work, she works with teenage girls, encouraging them to pursue code, math and science by demonstrating to them the same beautiful simplicity she found with the programmed art of the Logo turtle. @dafeinberg
