Mason is currently a Production Assistant with Netflix Animation on an unannounced children's show. Before landing at Netflix, he began his career as an intern at Eleven Arts, a production and anime distribution company, where he supported the Head of Development with developing Japanese IP's for both film and television. He's always had a passion for animation, but he got his first glimpse into the animation industry supporting the distribution and marketing for the anime film, The Wonderland.
He graduated from UCLA in 2020 where he majored in English and minored in Film & TV. Mason loves all things animated and is passionate about promoting authentic and diverse stories through animation. He truly believes that animation is a boundless medium and that there are no stories too "big" or too "small" for it.
Fun fact: Despite being of Chinese and Vietnamese descent, both of Mason's parents grew up in Cambodia, so he's grown up with all 3 cultures!
