More About Me

Originally from Tennessee, I have traveled many places growing up due to the challenges of military life. When it was time to enroll in college, I was set to study Geology with an emphasis in Paleontology in Texas, but found my hobby of creating art more aligned with my passions for creatures, characters and all things storytelling. After moving to Georgia to pursue a sequential art and animation degree, I dabbled in almost all aspects of entertainment industry including concept design and illustration. I finally found my favorite aspect of the creative industry in game development -- 3D art -- and moved to California to pursue a Bachelor's Degree in Game Art at the Art Institute in Orange County.

Since then I've continued to grow and learn in my artistic endeavors as well as make many new friends along the way. I'm best known for my cute and quirky handpainted style and bright fun designs. I love pushing stylized choices and creating concepts based on emotion, feeling, and the experiences of myself and those around me. I seek to continue to further my skills to bring my concepts to a greater life and share my experiences with others through games.
