Ever since Erica Penk saw the movie Toy Story she wanted to explore animation and voice her own characters which set her down a path toward film and realtime technology. Although both artistic and technical, she focused more on the technical side of the industry initially.

The name Ericana (rhymes with Americana) is a combination of the names Erica and Ana, meaning gracious and merciful ruler. She does not claim to be Mary Poppins or perfect in every way, but whether she is working with teens, teaching Unreal Engine, previsualizing a scene, editing, acting, singing, dancing, or recording voiceover, she strives to lead from a place of grace and mercy with the help of the Holy One.
