HELLO!

I am an artist based in Portland, OR who makes many different things, often involving puppets and portraiture of people you know and people you don't. I'm fascinated by the aesthetics of stop motion in the age of CGI, and endlessly enjoy investigating how best to capture tactile characters in photography. 

 

I currently work as a character sculptor on Guillermo del Toro's "Pinocchio" and have previously worked for studios such as Laika, Shadowmachine and Hornet Inc. I got my BFA in illustration at RISD and had a really delightful time. I'm a big fan of pickles, cats and musical theatre.
