Harley's tale begins as one of seeming insanity. That might only be forgivable due to the fact that she was four years old at the time. That's right... Before she wanted to be an astronaut... Before she wanted to dig up dinosaurs and fossils as a paleontologist... She wanted to be a superhero. Kids are nutty, huh?

Well, she quickly realized that wasn't happening and came to the conclusion that it'd probably be best to just read and watch their exploits. Several years later, she took a look at both at animation and comics as industries and said, "I want to be a part of that"... and she's been on that quest ever since. When not working on a multitude of other things, she enjoys watching any animation she can get her hands on, drawing, coloring, playing video games (Mostly RPGs and fighting games), digging up fossils, or heck, even reading a good comic book.

While Eileen is an advocate of all things wacky and fun, she’s probably one of the more centered people you’ll meet. There’s a time and a place for everything, after all. In addition to having some training in traditional animation, she is also quite familiar with business centric environments. She has a background in executive level administration, network integration sales, project coordination, mediation and management. Eileen is fully capable of holding an entire serious conversation without breaking into giggle fits and marveling at the wonders of string. She simply prefers the giggle fits… and the string.
