About Me

I am an Interactive Media major who hopes to create excellent animations and art for many different forms of media. I am hoping to begin working my way up the reputation ladder in the industry, with the end goal of becoming a freelancer, and perhaps create my own, featured, animated short. In my free time, I tend to frequent writing or brainstorming stories, creating characters, gaming, and reading. I also enjoy watching the work of other animators on Youtube and Vimeo, as a way to obtain inspiration and pay attention to their way of creating certain movements. Some of the characters I think up usually end up on paper in some way shape or form, and those that don't remain in my mind, ready to be used in later works. I enjoy digital concept art due to its beauty despite being simply concepts. As such, I enjoy watching tutorials about creating and improving one's art, while also looking at the works of other creators on sites such as DeviantArt. I attempt to follow as many creators on social media as possible, both for inspiration and experience. Currently I'm working on learning to improve creating environmental art, both digitally and physically. I hope to improve my works, and, eventually, begin to post them for others to view and critique.

Featured Projects


Female Plague Doctor Character Concept

Female Plague Doctor Character Concept

This is a character concept that is part of a larger series of concepts that I am currently creating for a story. This particular concept was among one of the first I ever worked on. The appearance and roles of plague doctors always intrigued me, and a such I decided to create a female version of one of these "doctors", with her interesting interactions with other characters at the forefront of my mind. Other details about her and her story are currently under wraps.

Vanguard Character Concept Art

Vanguard Character Concept Art

This is a work in-progress, digital character concept of the same series as the female plague doctor. This character concept involves a vanguard knight. Of all the warriors of Earth's history, the knight has been one of the few that I have a particular admiration for. So, I decided to create this heavily armored defender to express that interest. As with the plague doctor, any details beyond what is seen in the sketch will largely remain under wraps.

Smear Animation Project

Smear Animation Project

This is an short animation that was created as part of a class project that was meant to teach the concept and execution of the smearing technique. The animation involves a stout viking that has the unfortunate luck of dropping onto the frame, whilst looking for a dragon. This was one of my first animations, and as such, will likely improve in the future.
