Biography

I come from a small town in Kansas, and moved to the Emerald City to make games when I was 18. I received a degree from DigiPen Institute of Technology in Digital Arts and Animation. I've worked on 20+ student games, 5 game jam titles, 40 mobile casino titles, a character for snack company, a VR Architecture firm, and a short animated film called Bait and Switch which has been nominated to receive an animation festival student award. I've got an extremely wide range of skills I hone daily. I enjoy brewing kombucha, plein-air painting, and caring for my adopted min-pin-chi when I'm not working. I am currently working at IGT Seattle as a 2D/3D Artist, and have been for almost 6 years.
