I have been fascinated by art and visual design for my whole life. I want to know what makes an aesthetic look the way it does, and all the nitty gritty decisions that go into designing anything. I decided long ago that I wanted to be part of it. I wanted to design characters that people would fall in love with, or create a story with nothing but pictures and colors, or design an experience that let people know they're understood. More than anything, I want to make people FEEL, and I believe that's what art is all about.
Currently, I'm a fresh college graduate from SJSU looking to take my first big step into the world. I majored in design studies with a focus on Animation/Illustration, and during my summers I taught summer camps with creative themes--filmmaking, video game design, etc. Since graduating, I've expanded my skillset to include Web Design, UX Design, Video Editing, HTML/CSS, and more. I'm also working as a freelance artist with a heavy focus on illustration. There's never enough ways to learn how to design for people.
