About Me

I am a Junior Animation major with a User Experience Design minor. Besides drawing, I enjoy listening to music, watching movies, and attempting to play the piano. For this year's FUSE, I have worked as the Team Lead and artist for Space Slam. Because of this experience, I discovered that I enjoy helping to lead and would like to work in production or something management oriented in the future.

Featured Projects


Create-A-Guy

Create-A-Guy

Create-A-Guy was an animation created for the Animation Career Review contest which won Most Humorous. The art was made in Photoshop and the rest was animated in After Effects. A parody of The Sims, an unknown player creates their character, turning him into a not-so average character. Completed January 2019.

At The Bus Stop

At The Bus Stop

This work was created in Photoshop using only a trackpad. I wanted to play around with the colors to give the work a feeling that it was actually painted on a canvas with real watercolor paints. Completed December 2018.

What's Gnat?

What's Gnat?

This is a concept for an application that would be used to identify insects, spiders, and other creepy crawlies by either entering a description or taking a picture. The app would use a user's data on their location and time to give more accurate results. Completed December 2018.

Space Slam is a multiplayer game played on an arcade table using trackballs to control the players. Players can choose their character and get ready to slam - into each other! Players collect powerups, bounce off walls and knock others into deadly lasers. When a player kills another, the player gains a point but if the player dies, they will lose a point. The player with the most points wins and becomes the Space Slam champion!
