About Me

I first started drawing more or less 'officially' when I was 5 years old. My family was at church together, there was a lady crying as she gave her testimony at the pulpit and I decided to draw her on one of those little yellow notepads. My dad saw my drawing and said it was pretty good. I've been drawing ever since.

I've played video games since I was pretty little, maybe around 4 or 5 years old. We would visit my grandma's house and she had an Atari and a Nintendo that belonged to one of my cousins. We had a ball on those machines!! It was in high school that I decided that I wanted to make games. I saw all of the awesome 3D graphics coming out. I'm a big fan of Mortal Kombat and the character 'Fujin's cape truly amazed me. I wanted to create things like that too.

Going into game design is really a way to level up my art in my mind; to see my creations really come to life with sound, motion, and interactivity!  As mentioned in a prior blog post, Scared Away From My Own Dream, I was led on a bit of a goose chase as far as going directly to a game design school from high school. From there I began formulating my own path, but procrastinated as certain fears and concerns about the industry held me back.

Since that blog post, I have been getting a lot of encouragement from groups online, from game devs in the industry, from friends & family, and from gamers as well.  With my spirit bolstered I can see my own dreams more clearly again and have a solid idea of where I want top go and how I want to get there.

Thanks to all you readers and followers for all of your continued support on this journey.
