The motivation and determination that is reflected in my work inspires my viewers to step outside of their comfort zone and accomplish their goals, no matter how difficult they may be. Utilizing the traditional principles of animation, through Autodesk Maya, ZBrush, Photoshop and many other programs, I bring environments and characters to life through compelling narratives, and thought-provoking stories.
I grew up in a small town called Bel Air, near Baltimore, Maryland. Growing up, I tried out basketball, dance, and even acting before I gave art a try. When I watched my first Pixar movie, I became encapsulated in the rich quality of an animated film. It was Wall-E, and I couldn't believe how much personality I could see in a small little robot. The storytelling and animation made my focus clear, I knew what I wanted to do. In my high school years, I passionately studied art and animation, yearning to find a school where I could pursue my passion. Alas, I found Ringling College of Art and Design, which not only became a new place of study, but a sanctuary for my creativity. For the past two years I have been learning all aspects of the Computer Animation pipeline, and still become inspired by each new project I am tasked with. I love the thrill of creating something new and exciting, and seeing the final product after months of hard work and dedication.
