I received my BFA in animation from the Savannah College of Art & Design where I learned 2D and 3D with a specialization in character and effects animation. I also studied professional writing and sequential art.
I became an independent contractor while at SCAD and have freelanced ever since. I've done art, animation and design work as well as writing, translation and editing.
I went to the Republic of Georgia as a volunteer teacher and freelanced for another year after my contract ended. I then went on to Japan for an internship with the Labo International Exchange Foundation.
Back in Florida, I continued freelancing and started studying programming and scripting languages independently. In my free time I worked on my own projects, volunteered & joined the Jacksonville Coalition for Equality.
When I learned about the Opportunity Fund, I created an animation for my application video and was very fortunate to receive a scholarship for the UX program, which brought me to GA in DC.
With my new skills I plan to further my creative career, pursue independent projects, give back by volunteering with underprivileged youth who want to learn about the tech field and continue down a path of lifelong learning.
