United States,  College Station Texas A&M University,  Visualization,  December 11, 2015
I am currently a second year Masters of Science student at Texas A&M University studying Visualization. Prior to that I studied design at UCLA.

I am passionate about procedural modeling, effects simulation, and rendering because they are both artistic and technical. I also like programming for computer graphics, whether it's writing a physically based simulation, a ray tracer, working with WebGL, or writing scripts to speed up workflows.

I would like to work somewhere where I can be challenged both creatively and technically.
