After graduating high school in 2005, I spent time pursuing several different paths of study, starting with a brief tenure studying architecture at Arizona State University.  I changed direction in 2006 and pursued a music career that spanned 6 years and several wedding and corporate event bands.  I then chose to pursue more stable employment with and McLaren Automotive before returning to college to study game design at the University of Advancing Technology in Tempe, AZ.  I worked as a designer, lighting and technical artist for Monster Vault Entertainment for 2 years before leaving the company in 2019 to pursue other opportunities in the game industry.
