First and foremost, I am primarily a storyteller. My prefered medium is animation, though overall I do not commit to just one medium in specific. Instead, I build enthralling worlds and characters and choose the mediums most suitable for conveying their stories. Be it games, animation, comics, or film, I am passionate about telling great story in every project I pursue.

Art is a powerful way to communicate not only a story, but human psychology itself. I have always been fascinated by how differently people respond in a given situation. How their surroundings, past, and present define their current actions and emotions. I make art because I enjoy developing characters, giving those characters desires and dispositions and watching them interact with one another. I take great pleasure in the challenge of putting characters in absurd circumstances, and striving to make them believable. I employ a very simplistic and expressionistic style to invoke a wide range of emotions in my audience.
