Biography

Hometown: Indianapolis

High School: Franklin Central High School

Career Goal: Concept Artist/Scriptwriter

About: I am a second-year student here at the School of Informatics and Computing. I am majoring in Media Arts and Science and specializing in Concept Art and Digital Storytelling, and plan on minoring in Creative Writing and possibly American Sign Language (ASL).

I have been creating art and drawing ever since I was little. Originally I thought I would pursue an art-centered career and would attend Herron, since I attended a few summer classes there. But with my passion for gaming, I felt conflicted. I found that SoIC included a lot of opportunities and a major I felt comfortable with. SoIC gave me the chance to build myself up and improve so I can earn my way toward my goals of working somewhere within a video game company.

I can comfortably say being a Student Ambassador will definitely get me out of my shell. I am also apart of two honor societies (ALDPES) and plan on finding my way into a club or two.
