What is your name and your current occupation? 
 My name’s Aminder Dhaliwal and I’m a storyboard revisionist at Nickelodeon .
What are some of the crazier jobs you had before getting into animation?
I wish I could say I did something crazy like ‘My first job was digging graves’ or something, but I’d be lying. I’m lucky enough to have skipped working retail, while everyone around me was working at the mall in highschool I got into painting and designing murals, I’ve never even had the chance to checkout half the murals I designed, I had the chance to hand paint two of my creations. I hope they’re still around 🙂 or at the very least i hope the graffiti over them is funny!

What are some of your favorite projects you’re proud to have been a part of?
My first job at Nickelodeon was on Robot and Monster – which was awesome, the crew was amazing and so supportive!

What are some of your favorite projects you’re proud to have been a part of?
I’ve been part of some great shows, and am proud and honored to have had the opportunity to be a part of them.  I worked on King of the Hill for over 7 years, which was also my first job in animation, doing character design, then character layout, and finally storyboards.  I was at Family Guy for the better part of a year before moving to American Dad, which I worked on for about three years.  I had fun and learned a lot on those shows, having worked with some really cool and amazingly talented people, but I must say I’m most proud to be involved with Continue…
