In His Own Words
The CCA art school experience shaped me into the artist I am today. Art school opens your eyes to the endless possibilities of creativity. My time at CCA was not only about gaining my degree, but also about self-discovery.
CCA Faculty Influences
Jimmy Almeida taught me to be confident in myself and in the decisions I made in my artwork. His saying, "Work hard" will stick with me for the rest of my life. He’s one of the most down-to-earth instructors I have ever had.
Sean Nash instructed me in the ways of comedy. He showed me how to turn the terrible aspects of life into hilarious bits of comedy. He was a key aspect to helping me discover true passion -- making people laugh. He helped me come out of my shell to show the world who I truly am: a crazy, tall goofball!
Ed Gutierrez was the first teacher to guide him in the ways of animation, and he still continues to learn from the instructor today. He inspired Imperato to have confidence, tenacity, and to enjoy what he does.
