My Bio
I'm a graduate of animation from the Kansas City Art Institute. At my core I am a storyteller and I use my work as vehicles for my stories. My work is largely character driven and I often find myself deeply invested in the character’s history and personalities. When my work flows smoothly, my characters and illustrations often spawn entire universes. As ideas grow and expand I want to bring as much life to them as possible, which is where my animation comes into play, allowing me to give them movement. Inspiration strikes me at random times through dreams and interactions, ranging from everything from sociopolitical discussions to particular shades of green. With my passion for storytelling and my skills as an animator/illustrator, I aspire to become a creative director for an animation or video game studio.

Haven't Seen one of these in Forever

Haven't Seen one of these in Forever

Stolen from the awesome ~Savari07 ( So basically, if you comment, then I will: (1) Tell you something I learned about you by looking at your DA page. (2) Tell you a color you remind me of. (3) Tell you what element I believe you belong to (e.g. water, fire, air, etc.). (4) Tell you which one of your OC's is my favorite. (5) Ask you a question, and you must answer. (6) Tell you something I like about you or your art. (7) Give you a nickname. (8) Tell you what am I doing right now. (9) Tell you what food/ flavor/smell you remind me of. (10) Tell you to do this in your journal too, if you haven't already.

New Year Kickoff

New Year Kickoff

To Everyone still watching, Hey there!  THE BUZZ Its been 7 months since I posted the last journal, and I thought It was time for a new one. I've been quite busy working two jobs, one at a studio and another part time retail gig. Retail sucks by the way. The studio life is great, I'm doing creative work all the time, animating, filming, concept and design. But Right before the New Year I decided to try out the 30 Day Drawing Challenge and I'm on day 7 now. Its been fun and challenging to commit to a piece a day but I'm proud of myself for being consistent so far. You can follow my progress here on dA but my Blog is where I post everything
