I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. I graduated from Rhode Island School of Design ('12) with a BFA in Illustration and I currently living in Oregon, working in the character fabrication department at LAIKA Entertainment. My passion is in storytelling and the filmmaking process is my second favorite way of doing it! Sometimes, nothing beats sharing a story verbally and connecting with fellow humans on a personal level. I am all about exploring nature, seeking adventures and gaining new experiences so that I can collect a lifetime of stories to share when I become an old man.
