Interests

Since an early age my life has centered around art and the drive to create it. Colored pencils and watercolor had always been my choice of media to reflect the outer world, however now fast computing capabilities provide the tools to render my vibrant inner world. I love to surround myself with media that inspires me to create spooky and oddly cute characters.

Apart from my artwork, I enjoy baking, hiking, and visiting museums. During the colder months here in Virginia, I enjoy most of my time consuming any and all bad paranormal movies and standup comedy with a pint of hot tea in hand. I spend a lot of my free time exploring the latest tech advancements in virtual reality, while teaching myself CSS and Unity to propel myself further into the fascinating world of games.
