Without really even realizing it, I grew up with an incredibly creative and encouraging family. My dad was always woodworking or making something out of glass, metal, duct tape, or worse, beef. He’s a DIY kinda guy, teaching himself something new. My mom, an accountant (who swears accounting can actually be creative without being illegal) was always my own personal cheerleader, even encouraging me to major in something as lucrative as music. I really owe it all to them—without that combo I’d probably be working at the DMV and doodling moustaches on people’s driver’s licenses.
Over time I’ve cultivated a passion for illustrative designing and storytelling, and since I’m really a 4-year-old at heart, I’m naturally drawn to art that’s youthful, playful and exuberant. I change my hair every 5 minutes, and I'm obsessed with bright colors, geometric patterns, monsters and my dogs.
