In a nutshell, growing up in a household where both of my parents were artists, I learned early on the value of being creative. My father owned his own 3d animation studio while my mother took care of me and my twin sister while maintaining her freelance client base. Around the time my younger brother was born, I was struggling in school, but I always knew that even if I couldn’t get my report card on the fridge, I could always sneak a doodle or two up there. I saw the life my parents had built and decided to follow in their footsteps. By the time college ended I had interned at multiple studios, worked for my father’s animation company, and was just beginning to work for a company producing online learning videos. In between freelance jobs (about the time I’d won a poster contest for St. Louis’ Mardi Gras!) my life at SCORCH was just beginning. After being assigned to build a presentation, what started as a freelance opportunity had turned into a full-time job. I would never call myself an artist, I just make cool s***.
