I was born in Santa Monica, California and moved to Kansas at a young age. I originally pursued my college career in Aerospace Engineering where I obtained a dynamic understanding in the computer-aided design and mechanics of Engineering. During these years I worked at the Walter H. Beech Wind Tunnel where I developed hands on experience in developmental testing in Aeronautics. However, I eventually found my creativity in a state of limitation. I wanted to branch out my artistic abilities outside the confines of physics and mathematics. These limitations caused a shift in my perspective which presented a realization that art contains no boundaries. As much as I enjoyed Engineering my passion of art took precedence.
