Jonathan Page is an animator and when he saw Toy Story as a high school student in Orem, Utah, he knew that is what he wanted to do. After he served a mission to Russia for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, he thought better of his plan and majored in mechanical engineering instead. When he met a student in Brigham Young University’s animation program, he went back to his original interest and switched majors. He earned his bachelor’s degree in 2008.
He joined Pixar Animation Studios in June 2008. He was resident technical director on Brave and then character technical director for CarsToons, Brave, Toy Story of Terror, Lava, and The Good Dinosaur. He has also worked on Incredibles 2, Up, Coco, and Soul. On Soul, he worked on the counselors and soul world as a character model and articulation artist.
