Pete Docter

Pete Doctor is an animation artist at Pixar Animation Studio in Emeryville, California, where he began working in 1990. Along with John Lasseter and Andrew Stanton, Mr. Doctor developed the story and characters for “Toy Story”, the world’s first full length animated feature film, for which he also served as the supervising animator. He drew storyboards for “A Bug’s Life” and wrote the initial story treatments for both “Toy Story 2” and “Wall-E.”
Mr. Doctor made his directorial debut with “Monsters, Inc.”, and most recently directed the Academy-Award winning animated feature film “Up,” which made history in 2009 by being the first animated film to open the prestigious Cannes International Film Festival. Mr. Doctor’s empathy and compassion shine through his work and are key ingredients in his ability to create characters we all love.
