"I was born in Palmdale, California. Growing up, I enjoyed watching my share of Bugs Bunny cartoons, Disney movies, and let’s not forget … Sailor Moon! I got my start in art through my fascination with Japanese animation. That was when I really started to draw and experiment with Photoshop and online paint programs. But I realized that people in the animation industry weren’t supportive of anime. So, I decided to change my approach and channel my passion toward animation."
