Professional Summary

I was a self-taught artist till I entered Shorter University, where I began my degree path focused in Psychology. I am currently a Liberal Arts Major with my focuses in Art, Psychology, and English.

I will be obtaining my BA in Liberal Arts in December 2014, and then I want to further my career as a Christian Counselor in graduate school. I plan on getting my MA/Phd in Christian Counseling, while illustrating, modeling, and writing stories.

I am interested in illustrating for novels. I have mainly drawn science-fiction and fantasy characters over the past few years in college, because in high-school I was commissioned over 300 times online for character designs.

I like to take self-portraits, photographs of landscapes and of animals, write my own stories, blog, and cycle/hike as a hobbies. I am a big lover of travel and hope to see all of the world one day.
