I first realized I wanted to work in the industry in high school, but I still wasn't totally sure yet. At first, I had an interest in the programming side of things. After going to college for a short while, I realized I wanted something more visual. I eventually transferred to UTD to give 3D art a try and it really clicked with me that I wanted to work in the creative media and entertainment industry.
From a young age, animated films sparked a passion for the creative industries within me. Constantly drawing, and taking an animation course in high school solidified my love for this industry. Bringing characters to life on screen fueled my desire to pursue a career that blends my adoration for animated films, artistic expression, and storytelling.
