My road in life took a while to figure out.
Grew up loving art and was an avid illustrator, but gave it up at the age of 10 because he didn’t see a future as an artist.
Attended UCLA where he pursued his degree in molecular biology with the goal of going to grad school for his Ph.D. and becoming a researcher.
During his senior year of college, he began to doubt this career choice but didn’t realize he had an alternative.
After graduating, he got a job at a biotech company and co-authored a research paper—admits that during this time he was bored with his job, which eventually led him back to illustrating.
Decided to quit his job and move back in with his parents in order to fully dedicate his time to developing a portfolio that he could use to apply to art schools.
Attended the Art Center College of Design where he earned his degree in entertainment design.
While still in school, he started taking on freelance projects as a concept artist—after graduating he landed a full-time position working with Disney Interactive Media Group.
He now works as a concept artist for Walt Disney Imagineering, where he develops conceptual artwork and design projects for Disney theme parks and live entertainment.
