Born and raised in the panhandle of Florida, I have never settled for the mediocre. I currently reside in Orlando, FL, where I have lived since 2009. I moved here to complete my Undergraduate degree at the University of Central Florida. In May of 2012, I graduated with my B.A. in Digital Media and a speciality in Game Design. While in school I excelled in Project Management and organization.
Since leaving University, I have gained modeling and video manipulation experience within UCF’s Active Lab while also continuing my work in retail with Best Buy, of which I was employed for 8 years. In April 2013 I started a new journey with an amazing design firm named BrandCo, where I have excelled in technical support, domain manipulation, and project management.
I strive to live within the tech and game industry and to utilize my degree to the utmost! I feel that everything can always be better than it is…and desire to improve upon anything that I can have an effect on.
Orlando offers a lot of options when it comes to staying active within the community. I have and always will be a creative individual at heart, constantly feeling the need to create something, if even just for myself. This is what got me into creating costumes and becoming a “cosplayer” for charity. I manage and support the largest costume character for charity organization in Central Florida along side my three other council members. You can find out more about this organization, what we do, and my part in it by visiting the page about Philanthropy.
As for my personal life: My fiancé and I met in Orlando and he is a recent graduate of FullSail University with a degree in Computer Animation, Visual Effects. We have two dogs, Lulu and Maya, and regularly craft and work on cosplays for all the geekiest conventions that you can think of. We love to constantly create, it keeps our minds flowing. Other than that, we spend a lot of time watching insane amounts of NetFlix when we’re not enjoying walks around the area’s beautiful lakes or the world’s most beautiful beaches. We bowl, play lots of games on our phones, and constantly work to better ourselves together. 🙂
