Philosophy:

I enjoy solving creative problems: creative work gives meaning to my life. I feel most connected to my work when I’m learning, strategizing, collaborating, and integrating new solutions for problems. It’s important for me to work with professionals in the creative field and learn as much as I can at this stage in my career. Success for me is less driven by money (although it would be ideal to be fairly compensated for my work), and more driven by the positive impact or my work on a given project. I grew up with a strong work ethic and a commitment to community service: I was taught that making my environment a better place than I found it is a critical part of my being, and this guides me in my work. I’m grateful to find work I enjoy with people I can learn from where I can use my gifts.


What I do:

I work as a freelance artist in the Seattle film industry. I create custom specialty designs encompassing graphics, storyboards, concept art, props, set decorations, and scenic painting for theater, narrative, and commercial films.

Outside of film work, I paint commissioned oil paintings for clients.
