I dream of creating vast worlds with rich stories as a 3D environment & prop artist that inspire others to do the same.

I realized when I saw Meet The Robinsons for the first time. I was blown away by how fantastical everything was and knew from then on that I wanted to create my own immersive stories and environments.
