I love to do a little bit of everything but my focus is Rigging. I love the order and precision of connecting things in order to make a bigger picture. I love to create the tools that animators use to bring a character to life.

I started off as an Animation major, doing all kinds of art and design projects that included anything from typography to painting. If I wasn't doing homework then I was outside horseback riding or simply enjoying nature. If not then I was writing, drawing or enjoying everybody's favorite halftime of television. Animation studios like Disney and Studio Ghibli have inspired me to do what I love. Through my classes I figured out that I enjoyed Rigging, deciding that it was something I wanted to know more about. It intrigued me and I wanted to do more with it. Since then I have been sharpening my skills and learning what I can.

I use software such as Maya, 3DS Max, Photoshop, and AfterEffects for different processes within my work.

I've worked with Volunteer programs for the disabled, the hungry and children. This includes therapeutic horseback riding and a church donation center. I know how to communicate with people from being in the food industry as that is where people are honest at heart.
