I am a Junior at the University of Tampa studying for bachelors in Digital Arts - concentration animation. Born and raised in Rhode Island, my family and I now live down in Florida. I've been drawing since I was a toddler, back when eating crayons that were fruit colored seemed like a solid decision. I have been interested in animation ever since I was in elementary school. After having my dreams of becoming a Pokemon master squashed down by my parents I decided that if I couldn't catch and train Pokemon then I'd create them instead like the animators for the show did. Although nowadays I'm more set on my goal of owning my own animation studio and creating original animated TV series.
