When I graduated from college I decided to take a risk and move across the country. I was following my heart and jobs, and LA seemed perfect. It was far enough from home to have a new start and packed with the resources I needed to have a creative career. My family is filled with supportive artists who put me through SCAD and I had a marvelous teacher, Mrs. Mays, who was a huge influence on me. She put my work in shows and privately sent me and my twin sister to drawing classes on her own time. I wouldn’t have made it here without them.
Since transplanting to Los Angeles in 2005, I have been a stereoscopic artist, matte painter, cleanplate artist, illustrator, designer, and proficient rotopainter, and an actress in short films and new media projects. I currently work as a Product Specialist for Imagineer Systems, evangelizing Mocha's planar tracker to studios and artists across the world.
I like to share. I think that is why I have gravitated to teaching artists about software techniques. I feel like I won the "job lottery" because of mocha's down-to-earth corporate culture. I love to work with new artists. I get to engage more of their creative skills and less of their busy-work skills. I can't do the same exact thing day in and day out; being a cog in a cubicle is not me at all.
I am happy when I feel useful so I craft in my spare time: usually handmade costumes, paintings, props, and flower arrangement gifts. Being a part-time actress and writer, I make my own content as a creative lead. I also create freelance illustrations. For entertainment I play a lot of MMO RPGs, Tabletops, and I am an avid LARPer; which has lead to incredible friends. I like LA but I do miss the old oak trees, the lightning bugs, and the warm, humid evenings of the South.
In a few years, I would like to be training other product specialists as we grow. If you’d like to work together or you’d like a demo for your company please contact me and we’ll talk about your needs and solutions.
Professional, creative, social, driven. I like having a project and staying busy, but I also like to balance work with play. I excel at working with other people and finding new solutions to problems. I get along with everyone and bring life and personality to anything that I work on.
