Creating worlds for all to enjoy by leveraging technology. I enjoy how tech allows the illusion of immersion in an unreal world that would otherwise not exist in reality. Animation provides an extension of oneself to travel to a different world and bridging the minds of artist and audience. Life is just more exciting through the eyes of an artist. Aside from animation I enjoy off-roading, photography, and miniature set design. My drive as an artist is to push technology in creating more enticing worlds than that of what we already have.
Influencers: Colors of James Cameron's Avatar, bubbly animation of Blizzard's Overwatch, dark sci-fi references of 343 Industries Halo crossed with Bungie's Destiny, and humor of Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
"As my artist's statement explains, my work is utterly incomprehensible and is therefore full of deep significance".
