I am a Denver based artist who uses a mixture of traditional techniques and modern technological tools to create unique, eye-catching animations and illustrations. In 2013, I graduated from the University of a Colorado, at Denver, with a BFA in 3D Animation and a Minor in Art History. During my time there, I attended the Digital Animation Center (DAC) program, where I studied 3D modeling, character design, and narrative storytelling within a small collaborative team. The program concluded with a three-semester capstone production of a short film, where I took on the rolls of Art Director and Lead Character Designer. In my professional life, I worked as a Medical Animator, recreating anatomical procedures and functions with high-end 3D modeling and video editing software. I worked closely with medical professionals to model accurate reconstructions of actual medical scans and collaborated with members of NASA to create visually dynamic representations of experiments and research within the International Space Station. Locally, I have worked to create meaningful relationships and collaborative projects with musicians and artists throughout the Denver area, striving to bolster the community and uplift the people around me. In my spare time, I have worked to further develop a background in photography, painting, music, underwater basket-weaving, 3D printing, and writing, which provides a broad spectrum of skills, as well as influences, to aid in my many creative endeavors.
