I like to do a wide range of activities spanning from creating story and character based animations, all the way to being waist deep in powder with a snowboard attached to my feet at 12,000 feet. I have participated in the Disney College Program as a custodian at Hollywood Studios where I was able to improv act and give pseudo-tours around the park for guests, live a summer abroad in Italy, and ventured 3 miles into a cave with a 200 foot mountain inside. If you are looking for someone who is creative, efficient, outgoing, improvisational, passionate, and extremely organized, please do not hesitate to contact me.

I recently graduated from the University of Georgia in December 2017 with a major in Computer Animation and Theater/Film Studies, where I learned animation, film, and theater techniques, as well as participated in an abundant amount of studio art courses. I focused on Character Animation and Filmmaking, and completed my senior thesis project in character animation.

I participated in an interview about UGA's Cortona Study Abroad program, which features an interview of myself along with footage I took during my time across Italy in the summer of 2016.
