I'd love to be a concept artist for video games or animation, working with a team of other skilled artists to make awesome stuff!

Ever since I was a kid, I've loved plunging myself into the worlds of games and film, especially media with extensive worldbuilding and creative concepts. I used to look at works like Doctor Who, Lord of the Rings, and Star Trek and marvel at their complexity. I only recently realized I could make something like that myself! I want to be able to create work like the things that captivated me as a kid, and help bring up the next generation of dreamers.
