10-second bio: Meet Andre Cleveland, mail processor and ’toon maven

Andre Cleveland, mail processorName: Andre Cleveland

Title: Mail processor

Department/Unit: Building and Administrative Service Center (BASC)/Work Management Center

Location: 6th floor, Franklin

When I started working at UCOP: June 6, 2012

What I do for UCOP in five words or less: Customer service, mail processing, Lobby 1

The best part about working for OP: I enjoy being a part of a great team like BASC, where I’ve been allowed to showcase my talents. It’s customer service that I love the most, and serving people who have questions about mail and shipping.

Something you don’t know about me: My hobby is drawing cartoons. I started drawing at age 9, and some nights I dream in cartoon. My favorite kinds of ’toons are comic books and comic strips, especially ’80s cartoons and Manga.

One weird fact about the town I grew up in: I’m from Pittsburgh, PA. We eat lots of french fries, with sandwiches and everything. Heinz products are staples there, so when I moved to the Bay Area and saw Heinz bottles of ketchup sitting on tables, I smiled because they’re from Pittsburgh.

If I could have any job in the world (besides the one I have now), I would be: I would work at Pixar Studios as a storyboard artist.

    I agree with Scott–your artwork is excellent! Hope you have a chance to submit your portfolio to Pixar some day.

    Dreaming in cartoon is the real deal! And while not from Pittsburgh, if I had my way, fries would come with every meal. With gravy (the latter is a NY thing).

    I agree with Larissa: dreaming in cartoon is the real deal! Plus Speed Racer was one of my favorite animes growing up.
