Illustrator CG Artist, Los Angeles, CA
I am a illustrator/CG designer based in Los Angeles, CA. I grew up on a little rock called Hawaii, being around the ocean and lush environments have given me creative influence in my art. I now reside in Los Angeles, CA where my passion for drawing and painting has led me to the digital world to bring visual ideas to life. My goal is to work in feature animation in visual development and CG.
