I am an animator and designer, with a CG generalist background and a passion for animation that knows no bounds. Currently, I spend my days animating game cinematics at Aspyr Media as an Associate Animator. Prior to that, I joined the mobile division of KingsIsle Entertainment as the primary animator on Dice: Legend of Whitestone, animating and rigging a slew of monsters, creatures, and human characters. Ooo man, and if we track back a bit further, the professional animation journey all began in 2018 when I joined the Gen:Lock team at Rooster Teeth.
I proudly hold a BFA in Computer Animation from Ringling College of Art and Design (2018), where I produced my solo animated short film, “Just Add Water”. I earned an Associates degree in Graphic Design and Digital Communications at Aims Community College, where I produced 2d animations (traditional and digital), experimented with film and editing, refined my traditional illustration skills, and honed in on graphic design and motion designs. If we're being honest, though, Aims was a good time, but a greater opportunity to just develop a good portfolio for Ringling, since I was indeed hellbent on attending RCAD and ONLY RCAD.
I’ve been a caricature artist, face painter, body painter, digital marketer, graphic designer, photographer, and film/photo editor. Taking an abstract idea and converting it into a visual design that best represents that concept is a challenge I am always ready for. I love versatility, thrive on tight deadlines, and above all else, push boundaries to reveal uncharted possibilities.
I love what I do and am always on the lookout for new challenges and opportunities to expand my horizons. I am incredibly thankful to have been able to follow this path, and honored to be a part of this creative community. It is an absolute dream come true.
