A story artist, illustrator and animator from the Seattle area, I grew up in a family so obsessed with books we started to use the staircase banisters as bookends. When asked to pare down his collection, my grandfather used to say, ’Books are my friends. And I don’t get rid of my friends.’ That's how I see stories. They aren’t just books and movies. Whatever form they take, stories are living, breathing, and always evolving with their audience. They don’t just reflect who we are; they shape our future.
The summer of 2023 I had the wonderful opportunity to join Pixar as a Story Intern, and learn from some of the best storytellers and artists in the world. I am also a graduate of Ringling College of Art and Design’s computer animation program (class of 2023), where I made my short film “Bonbon Voyage”, winner of the Best of Ringling Bronze Jurors Award.
I love antiques, cats, and just about any dessert you can think of.
