Currently a Filmmaker and Lighting Artist at Blue Sky Studios.

Check out the trailer for the latest project I was on - Spies in Disguise - below.

Thesis Work:

The Moon Is Essentially Gray (trailer below) is a Student Academy Award nominated short about a young child and her fantastic flight to the moon. 

The film was also turned into an interactive VR experience in a partnered event with Epic Games and Unreal Engine during the SIGGRAPH 2017 VR Film Jam.
