A multidisciplinary designer & musician born in Oregon and raised equally by a supportive family and a chaotic internet. I'm pursuing a BFA in Oregon State University's professional Graphic Design program and will graduate in 2019. I'm diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, so I manually learned the rules of conversation, body language, and... most things, really. I am defined by ability to dive unexpectedly deep on topics and integrate seemingly unrelated knowledge into my various creative practices.
I have been and aspire to be many things... animator, fashion model, role model, beatboxer, music producer, competitive Smash Bros. player, illustrator, rapper, and so forth. I am fueled by a relentless desire for creative and intellectual adventures.
