Born in Idaho I grew up with parents who valued art and theatre, and allowed me to use my imagination to go where I needed it to take me.
As an adult, imagination is of the utmost importance to me. It is what allows us to create the extraordinary out of the everyday, as I learned through experiencing the work of Jim Henson, George Lucas, Chuck Jones, and many other artists I have admired since childhood.
One of the more valuable things i learned about these artists is that they didn’t do it alone. They collaborated with many others to help create worlds that have inspired so many people. That they recognized that they couldn’t do it by themselves and found other artists to build on their ideas to create something even more rich, fascinating, and entertaining.
Imagination. It is what started me on my path, and it is what guides me everyday.
