Kristen Yuan is an LA-based Story Artist for Feature Animation at Netflix. Alongside Mild Kamolluck Niamkongkit, she is the co-creator of the award-winning animated short, Gaslight. After graduating from the Ringling College of Art and Design in 2021, she was brought onto Netflix to work on Steps, a film in production with Amy Poehler’s Paper Kite Productions. She was originally only meant to stay on the project for 10 weeks as a freelance artist — and here she still is, on the same team three years later! Born in Ann Arbor, Michigan, she moved to LA in 2022 to work in person for Netflix. She enjoys cold weather, good music, and BCD Tofu House at late hours with friends.
