I could be happy anywhere along the 3D pipeline, but doing character/creature design at a game studio is my North Star for the moment.

From the age anyone can know what they want to do in life, I knew I wanted to tell stories in some way. So when as a child I saw my brother messing around in Mudbox circa 2006 and learning this was foundational to the development of all my favorite games, I was hooked. It wasn't until recently that I've had the financial resources to pursue it as a career, and that passion is still going strong.
