About Fawn Veerasunthorn

Fawn Veerasunthorn is Head of Story for Raya and the Last Dragon at Walt Disney Animation Studios. She joined the Studio as a story artist in 2011, and has since contributed her talents to the Oscar®-winning feature films, Frozen and Zootopia, as well as Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Moana, Ralph Breaks the Internet, and Frozen 2.

Born and raised in Chonburi, Thailand, Veerasunthorn grew up with being inspired by Disney animated films and knew she wanted to take part in recreating the magic and wonder they gave her, for the next generation. She was further encouraged to pursue a career in animation at age 18, when she heard that an artist from Thailand was working at Disney’s animation studio in Florida. Veerasunthorn received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Columbus College of Art & Design in Time-Based Media Studies.

Prior to joining Disney Animation, Veerasunthorn served as a story artist in television and film at studios including Illumination Entertainment, Nickelodeon, and Warner Bros. Before getting into storyboarding, Veerasunthorn was an animation director at Six Point Harness Studios.

Veerasunthorn resides in Burbank, California with her husband, daughter, and two cats.
