Auden Lincoln-Vogel grew up in Andover, Massachusetts and went to Reed College in Portland, Oregon, where he majored in Russian literature and studio Art. Originally a sculptor, Auden became interested in animation in college after realizing that immobile objects were, "really quite boring." Since graduating in 2013, Auden has traveled in New Mexico, New Zealand, Oregon, Washington and Massachusetts, collaborating with other artists on several new animations including "Gila," "The Past Inside the Present," and "Trein."
