Tim Milliron is Vice President of Engineering at Lytro, where he leverages his broad experience in computer graphics and cloud computing to drive engineering across hardware and software.
Tim began his career at Pixar, where he first specialized in large procedural set pieces and character rigging for films like Toy Story 2, Monsters, Inc., and Finding Nemo. He led the characters and crowds group for Cars, which built hundreds of unique characters for the film as well as the software used to animate and simulate them. After Cars, Tim led software development for Pixar’s next-generation character articulation, animation, and simulation systems, first used on Brave and now used studio-wide.
Most recently, Tim spent four and a half years at Twilio, serving in senior leadership roles in engineering and product and tackling the scaling challenges of a hypergrowth cloud startup. During his tenure, Tim helped grow Twilio’s team, revenue, and infrastructure more than 10x.
Passionate about film and photography, Tim comes from a long line of professional photographers in Salt Lake City, Utah, where many of his family’s photographs are now preserved at the Utah State Historical Society.
Tim graduated summa cum laude from Princeton University and was awarded the Andersen Consulting Prize in Computer Science and the Calvin Dodd MacCracken Senior Thesis Award.
