About Me:

I'm an animated illustrator and a self-proclaimed expert of unexpected cute. I'm a firm believer that I'm one of my dad's seven pugs reincarnated in human flesh only to beg for more food. I classify my race as "Other: a hobbit." I'm an enthusiast for mythical beasts, Olive Garden's never-ending pasta bowls, and Freddie Mercury from Queen. 

Aside from the personal riff-raff, my skill set is directed for visual development and story art for animation.
