writer | artist | animator


I’m a writer and artist living in Los Angeles.

I have a lot of creative interests.


I’ve been drawing since I can remember. I went to art school in Boston at the Massachusetts College of Art, where I graduated with honors with a degree in Illustration.

I’ve also taken classes in 2D and 3D animation, character design, and concept art.


While I was in art school, I was able to take creative writing classes at Emerson College.

Once I decided to focus on television writing, I was accepted into the NBC Writers on the Verge program, the Nickelodeon Writing Program, and the CAAM Fellowship.



For my day job, I work as a UX Designer. I’ve worked at Shazam, Napster, and at several agencies where I worked on projects for brands including Disney, X-Box, Paramount, Hyundai, and more.

personal finance

I focus on financial freedom so I can continue to live a creative life.

Being in control of your finances is especially important for creative people who might have unpredictable income, more expenses for continuing education and equipment for creative endeavors. Financial stability makes it easier to focus on creativity, without worries about paying the bills.


I have a blog where I document my financial strategies, creative projects, travels, and anything else that interests me.
