The moment that I realized that I wanted to work in the visual effects industry was in high school. My days were focused around digital painting, bringing stories and places that were daydreamed into color forms. After seeing the movie Tangled, I realized there was a whole other side of digital art that I want to explore, 3D. Growing up, I studied pre-professional classical ballet which grew my appreciation for 3-Dimensional arts and human form. I thought how amazing it would be to combine both my understanding of motion and creating pretty pictures. It stuck with me from there on that I could created something that people could remember and cherish throughout a lifetime, thus I knew my path in life was to pursue developing stories and sets for film or gaming.
