"My goal is to tell & invoke stories through captivating and cutting-edge visuals. My work stems from a combination of knowledge in Traditional Arts & Modern Contemporary styles; often used in a way where admirers of Classical Art and Pop Culture both find a

common-ground."

History

Work

"Growing up I was engrossed by early anime/manga culture and decided in elementary that I  wanted to tell my own stories in a similar format. While in elementary school, I made the revelation that animations are simply put, multiple drawings succeeding each other rapidly; by playing and pausing a VHS. Soon after I began making small animated work using MS Paint & Windows Movie Maker. In middle school I began to create short comics by hand, further grasping the idea of world-building. During my sophomore year in high school (2008) I began a web-comic called "A!M"; the same would later have an animated counterpart with two released episodes (2009-2011) and a 3rd (2011-2012)

mid-production. Post-college (2013) I would again make the transition from Animation to Graphic Novels with my project "UNRIVALED" being created, and further developed since. In addition to this; I create Fine Arts and have contributed original art and canvases in my surrounding area. Lastly, as an educator I have led classes and workshops for aspiring artists, trying to be the mentor that I wish I had as a child, who only knew ambitions."
