My personal philosophy is that there is a certain beauty and "art" to everything. Throughout my life, I have found inspiration in many people, places, and things all over the world and draw from those inspirations in the stories I tell.
My work has been featured on websites like BLEACHER REPORT, MASHABLE, and FANSIDED and my overall goal is to one day manage a successful east-coast-based animation studio, producing feature-length films and animated shows.
Let's connect and create some amazing art!
