Summary

I am passionate about crafting fantastic worlds, filled with characters, props and environments that people want to transport themselves into. Characters, spaces and props can create a mood and tell a story.

I originally graduated with a degree in Psychology. After that, I took the LSATs and was about to send off my application for law school, until I decided that I wanted to do what I love, which was conceptualizing worlds through art. That decision has led me to my current path so far, and I love every second of it. My background compels me to delve deeply into the minds of characters and meticulously analyzing what makes a compelling story.

I previously worked as a concept artist for theme park design and virtual reality experiences.
