Bio

Hello, I am a senior at The University of Texas at Austin working to increase representation through original content in media. With goals to foster a more diverse and inclusive future for creatives both in front of and behind the screen, I aim to one day make fresh, innovative content reflecting the cultures that I both identify and resonate with. While studying and working in fields like design, illustration, animation, and storytelling overall, I have gained a passion that I aim to use throughout my career as a creator. Learning and gaining experience in areas such as character design, storyboard art, comics, graphic design, production, writing, and development have prepared me to both learn and contribute as a dedicated member of the creative industry.
