Born and raised in the small town of Whiteville, NC. From an early age I showed an interest in art and animation, and often devoted much of my time drawing characters from either cartoons or creating my own. Throughout my school years I entered my work in various art competitions and exhibits. By the time I reached high school my interest shifted into 3D animation and video games. As a result, I enrolled in Living Arts College in Raleigh, NC where I earned my degree in Digital Animation.
