Early Life and Career change

Sam Marin was born on March 14, 1984 in Rochester, Michigan. He moved to California in 2002 to major in character animation at CalArts.[2] He met fellow animator J.G.

Marin would help Quintel on his student films, such as The Naive Man from Lolliland and 2 in the AM PM, and voiced characters in the films. This would have started his career in voice acting.[3] Marin later graduated from CalArts and got a job as an animator at Walt Disney Animation Studios, where he worked for three years before Regular Show was greenlit.
