Hello my name is Peyton Zignego and I am a writer, animator, and podcaster!
Writing for both podcasting and animation has given me a great breadth of abilities when it comes to storytelling - the two are more connected than most think! Though one is all audio and one is mainly visual, the two have a great deal in common when it comes to writing and I enjoy finding those avenues and exploring ways to tell inventive stories in both mediums. I am also a great team player and consider myself someone who can work with just about anyone, plus I'm happy to lead and be led, something I think lets me fit well into any team.
I've always been someone well immersed in storytelling, as a grew up with books as my best friends. Books became podcasts and cartoons and appreciation turned to passion and I started creating at an early age and by high school I knew I wanted to make it my career! I recently finished getting my B.A. in Traditional Animation and Narrative Radio at Columbia College Chicago!
