My Story

Imagine a high-school kid who spent hours after school drawing art on the computer with a mouse, well that was me.

Fortunately, my older sister gave me a drawing tablet soon after. I became interested in programming and art which led me to Media Arts. I taught myself how to draw while learning the software development side at SFU. Applying my skills in Adobe, I started freelancing in graphic design for startups and app developers. One of my key strengths is that I view programming and art as the same, a way to build my ideas through problem-solving. My methodical thinking led me to my first job experience in the film industry.

During my internship at Sony Imageworks, I became experienced with the VFX pipeline by organizing files with Python and Linux. I rediscovered my passion for matte painting and I gained insight into the technical sides of video editing and visual effects. As I continued to learn digital compositing, I started making art for games as well.

Nowadays, I volunteer my time at Global Game Jam as a founder of Pixel Route, a group that helps game development teams find artists at annual hackathon events. I hope to combine all of these experiences with my digital art to continue making games, shows, and films in the future.

I'm always up for being part of a creative and tight-knit team!
