About

Welcome!

I'm currently a character animation student at CalArts, pursuing my second degree. I work as a designer at a digital marketing agency in San Francisco and as a freelance illustrator. Freelance projects include children's book illustration, character design, portraiture and graphic design.

My goal is to inspire empathy and personal growth through the stories I tell. Through creating strong characters and their stories, I want to give back what animation has given me: a return to the curious, kind, hopeful and brave person who has always been within. My work aims to uplift, and open the heart.
