I’m Ariel Neves, life-long learner and interdisciplinary thinker.

I am not only seeking knowledge about animation so I can pursue it as a career, but I’m also devoted to remaining a well-rounded individual, continuing to be informed about science, politics, and literature. [add more.. theater?]

Academic Philosophy:

I’ve always felt drawn to the Greek concept of arete. It was considered a method of honoring the gods, as a way of life; being the best that you can be. Arete requires the consistent desire to always continue improving, and for me, it’s proved the answer to being fulfilled and content as an academic person.
