From an early age, I was drawn to creating my own miniature worlds. No matter how I played—with Legos, Barbies, Lincoln Logs, even in the sandbox—I always loved to construct tiny, immaculately decorated houses and towns.
Much later, as a student, I tried stop-motion animation. To my surprise, the process seemed to come naturally. Building the sets and puppets has always been my favorite part. This discovery led me to explore computer animation as well, with the same emphasis on handmade elements.
The same interests have led me to web design. Websites are like little worlds in themselves, with the pages like the rooms of a house—unique components of a larger structure. Organizing information seems to go hand in hand with my pixel-level attention to detail.
After many years in Northwestern Pennsylvania, I now live in the Lincoln Square neighborhood of Chicago. I love Chicago summers, and can often be seen at local beer bars and art fairs. I currently work in Lincoln Park as a Flowmaster at The Jellyvision Lab.
