Growing up
Growing up paragraph

As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be an artist. I, like many children drew and painted for fun. Though as I grew, I found that the fun shifted a bit and became a set of skills that I attributed through practice and technique.

Raised in the Silicon Valley with two brothers and two sisters, I quickly understood the importance of teamwork and communication at an early age. I was also privileged in participating in martial arts and then passing my knowledge as an instructor for 10 years. This instilled discipline, patience, and emphasized how important practice is. I believe the experience I had growing up gave me an edge in my education and helped me adapt through many types of workflow environments.

My Education in animation started in high school, which lead me to San Jose State University. I had the privilege to learn from great instructors and work with many amazing fellow classmates. I was also lucky enough to learn from abroad, getting to travel and study in Europe. While in Europe I took advantage and was able to take in many of its gorgeous scenery and beautiful culture.

Although my passion started with animation, it flowed over to story boarding. I found myself more intrigued with a new found obsession in cinematic storytelling. It is hard to say when this transition happened, though I am grateful to find myself learning and at the same time having fun. I am not just adapting, but expanding my skills.
