I was raised in a military family moving every three to four years until I graduated from High school in Sumter, South Carolina. I attended The University of South Carolina and earned a bachelor degree in Studio Art with a concentration in graphic design.
I worked at bookstore and at a vinyl sign shop, but continued to long for work as an artist. I moved north and eventually cross-trained into computer science and worked in a hospital’s I.T. department. My plans would have to wait a little while as I did art projects on the side.
The “draw” to be creative never left me and after getting married, my wife and I decided that I needed to continue my education in the field of Computer Animation. After doing some shopping for schools, Full Sail University had the right degree program and location that we were looking for.
I have completed school and earned a Bachelor of Science in Computer Animation. Presently, I am working on independent projects and tutoring art students.
