About Me

I am a 3D artist. I recently worked on the short film Delivery as a character and environment modeler, technical lead, production manager, but most importantly as the pun master. I have a Bachelor's in character animation from the University of Central Florida, a program limited to 30 applicants a year, and explored my other interests such as writing and advertising through my studies for my mass communications minor and in the Burnett Honors College. I currently am continuing my education at UCF in the Tech Art track at the Florida Interactive Entertainment Academy and will graduate with a Master's of Science in Interactive Entertainment in December 2021.
