I was born in a small town in South Carolina and up until I went to college, I never had a proper art class. I have been drawing since the age of 5 and have always had an interest in animation. It was not until I watched the original Jurassic Park that my spark for Visual Effects took shape. When movies such as Transformers (2007) and the groundbreaking Avatar (2009) were released it became clear that Visual Effects is something I wanted to do. With a focus on compositing, being able to combine all the elements together from each section of the pipeline into a final scene is very satisfying. When I am not working on VFX I like to change gears and work with my hands doing woodworking or leathercraft.
