Kat Thorson Good

Animation Director, Kat Thorson Good graduated from CalArts and began her career as a student/intern at Turner Animation and Disney TV Animation.  Her first industry job was at Walt Disney Feature Animation where she worked on films from Hercules through Treasure Planet.  Kat spent the next decade at DreamWorks Animation as a story artist, working on films that include Kung Fu Panda, Bee Movie, Megamind, Rise of the Guardians, Peabody and Sherman.  In 2013, Kat returned to Disney TV Animation as a director on Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero and Big Hero Six: the Series. Currently, she is working in Development at DTVA on super top secret projects.

Having a deep appreciation for giving back to the community, Kat has participated as a mentor and vice chair for Women In Animation’s mentorship committee as well as DTVA’s internal mentorship program. 

Apparently not having enough to do, Kat is a founding member of PlayHybrid Studios, a Montreal based entertainment company, overseeing storytelling, look development and design for mobile game and VR titles.

Kat’s greatest joy is helping to raise her two young children.
