About

Art + Animation

I’m an animator and illustrator based in San Diego, California. Born and raised in Portland, Oregon with a passion for the outdoors.

Absorbing inspiration from my experiences. Travel, surf culture, and nature have a repeat influence in my life.

I enjoy mixing mediums and finding harmony between digital and handmade processes.

When I’m not creating in my studio, I like to explore my surroundings and the sea.

In 2010 I graduated from the Disney founded college, CalArts, with BFA in Character Animation from the school of Film/Video.

Get in touch if you would like to collaborate on an upcoming animation, licensing, or illustration project.
