about me

From Downey, California, I am an up and coming FX Artist and a recent graduate from Gnomon School of Visual Effects. I come from a family of immigrants and continue to uphold their values of hard work and dedication to their craft.

 

I have been incredibly inspired by the visual effects of today's media and strive to create fantastical effects that may inspire others as well. My dream is to help collaborate in as many visual effects projects as I can while also improving my skill every day.
