My first go at getting the ideas cultured from a childhood of wonder and creativity into a tangible format came with my admission to the University of Maryland for a degree in Aerospace Engineering. I learned far more than I thought possible, about design, my work style, and even a bit about fluid dynamics and calculus.
Romance brought me here, but the beauty and vibrancy of West Michigan and its people kept me here. I got my affairs in order and kept learning, preparing for the next phase of my journey.
I enrolled in Full Sail to satisfy the artistic itch that demanded the designs get out of my brain. I chose to specialize in Game Art, but found I enjoyed compositing, hard surface modeling, and crafting environments from scratch.
I began working in the specialty storage design industry in October 2014, and have continued my education through resources like Free Code Camp to move into the technical artist and engineering space. I'm excited to see how my interests and knowledge continue to evolve!
