I grew up on an old farm an Northern VA and my experiences wandering the fields and woods as a child have informed my work as an artist and animator. Being outside is one of my greatest pleasures, especially in the woods. That's kind of hard to do here in Brooklyn but I do see and feel the urban forest around me.
I received a BA in Fine Art at UCLA and an MFA in Printmaking from George Washington University. That was a great foundation and many people have helped and inspired me since.
