Life and career
Danielle Feinberg was born in Boulder, Colorado and graduated from Boulder High School. Growing up, she attended summer camps and after-school programs for students interested in computer programming and engineering. She attended Harvard University, where she was introduced to computer animation in a computer graphics course during her junior year. She graduated in 1996 with a Bachelor of Arts in computer science.
After graduating from Harvard, she started working at Pixar in February 1997 as a technician managing the large libraries of data and images for rendering A Bug's Life. She has since been credited for leading work in visual effects, technical direction, and graphics.
Outside of Pixar, she mentors girls to get them interested in STEM through groups like Girls Who Code. She says yes to every talk which provides a platform to inspire and encourage girls to dreams and pursue it by getting into STEM fields.
