I grew up in Texas with a love of drawing. As I got older, I realized that an ordinary office job would not satisfy me and pursued my passion for the arts. I attended West Texas A&M University and received my BFA in Graphic Design in 2011. The following year was spent working at a production company where I was a video editor and motion graphics artist. I have come to the University of Southern California to pursue my love of animation and investigate ways of marrying my graphic design background with available animation techniques. I also really like ice cream sandwiches.
