what I do

my background

My childhood was filled with notebooks full of stories and thousands of printer paper pages of drawings; when I was thirteen, I even wrote a fifty-page movie script for my friends to act in. Since then I've gotten slightly less intense, but I'm still very passionate about creation, storytelling, and art. 


I studied at Pacific University, earning a BA in Film & Video along with my minor in Studio Art.

film & video

I have done a variety of film work, both in and outside of school, where I have done videography, directing, writing, animation, and editing alike. Although my primary focus is narrative, I also enjoy working on documentary and commercial products.


I have filmed and edited wedding videos before, have done video and photography for musicians at their concerts, and I currently work at The Berglund Center at Pacific University, producing videos for marketing and promotion.

art & design

I work primarily in Adobe Photoshop, although I am also well-versed in Illustrator, and I do traditional work, as well.


My work has ranged from concert posters, to commissioned drawings from private clients, to album cover art, and more. I am more than happy to receive inquiries about my freelance commissions, prices, and abilities.
