Born and raised in Draper, Utah, I have been involved with the arts my whole life. One of my paintings can be seen in the gallery at Draper Elementary. Additionally, I represented Jordan High School as the sterling scholar in Visual Arts in 2000. I obtained a BFA in Illustration at Brigham Young University (BYU) in 2005 and also performed as a singer/dancer with BYU's Young Ambassadors tour group. From there I began work with Avalanche Studios in Salt Lake City, also known as Disney Interactive Studios, making video games for 10 years. I have always been honing my performing arts skills by writing and publishing music, starring in films, acting in commercials and creating entertainment for audiences of all sizes.
