When I was in grade 7, my sister showed me Toy Story. I was so blown away. I remember sitting on the couch and thinking about half way through the film, "I am going to do this for a living." In grade 9 my school recieved 3d studio max. Thats where I got my start in digital art. Unfortunately, I spent more time learning the program than I did practicing my art skills. This trend continued up until my second year of university when I asked myself," Why am I a crappy artist?" My path has left me with a great deal of technical knowledge but a need to focus on the aesthetics. Now I am focusing on the art as much as I can.

I'm 21 and I'm looking forward to traveling and exposing myself to the different cultures of the world.

Thats about it. Peace!
