Artist Statement
Life is just more exciting through the eyes of an artist. Technology enables a bridge from the artist mind to an audience. Earth will never seem as bright or colorful as that in which was created by us. My art is primarily based through technology. I enjoy how technology allows the illusion of immersion in an unreal world empowering anyone to be apart of it. Animation provides an extension of self to travel to a different world that would otherwise not exist in reality. Aside from animation I enjoy 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".
