I grew up in the California bay area.  I relocated to Chicago to attend the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where I studied painting and drawing before switching to animation.  I’m currently pursuing an MFA at the California Institute of the Arts and live in Los Angeles, CA.  My new work is primarily concerned with cinematic depictions of technology and am currently in production on a film about the architects of the Web 2.0 era Internet, set in 2006.  I have a big poster of Justin Bieber up in my workplace (although I should probably replace it soon with a poster of PSY).
