I learned Adobe Photoshop as a student at Boston University: Center for Digital Imaging Arts in 2006. I worked on a practicum for Boston Children’s Hospital as a texture artist. My skills in Photoshop grew as I continued to reach out and collaborate with indie game designers and short animated film groups.

I currently am continuing my studies in higher education and learning more about the ever expansive design industry. Eventually I would like to provide my creative skills and knowledge in a unique environment.
