I am a dedicated honors graduate of The Art Institute of Seattle, where I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Media Arts and Animation with a focus on concept art and design. Since graduation, I have discovered a fondness for teaching students the "world of art" and making the subject fun and personalized for each individual's goals. While I teach a broad range of art subjects, I am most passionate about illustration (graphic design) and animation. In my experience helping struggling students find a passion and purpose for themselves in relation to art, I always seem to have the most fun (with remarkable advancements) engaging with each individual to make the class personalized for them while still hitting the requirements and standards. By making the class personalized it gives each of my students the opportunity to see how art can be used in their life, no matter how "unrelated" it may be to their career goals. In my spare time, I enjoy testing out new technologies that can be used to enrich the art world such as augmented and/or virtual reality as well as simple hobbies like leisurely playing video games, working on passion projects, DIY for my lovely pets, and playing around with mechanical design concepts.
