I am a BFA graduate at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design with a degree in animation, and have worked in traditional hand-drawn, cut-out, stop motion, and computer-generated animation. I have been involved in several collaborative client-based and narrative projects, as well as personal works. Additional skills include illustration, 3D modeling, texturing, concept art, and UV mapping.

I'm particularly interested in the narrative filmmaking aspect of animation. I'm fascinated by films with fully developed worlds that I can absolutely get sucked into! Pair that with well developed characters, and the entire piece is that much more believable. Today, my goal is to take the same active imagination I had as a child and create films for others to enjoy and be inspired by!

I'm very interested in further developing my skills in CG animation, modeling, and character design. as well as developing other animation and filmmaking related skills, such as editing, sound mixing, drawn animation, and special effects. I am currently looking for animation projects that involve collaboration and strong narrative/character development.
