When did you start at Digital Brew?
April 5th, 2021
What the heck do you do here?
Storyboards, video direction, and a ton of illustrating!
What are you listening to lately?
Podcasts, alternative rock, and movie soundtracks.
What is your favorite movie of all time? Why?
That’s a great question! I’m so indecisive when it comes to that because I love so many, but if I could narrow it down I’d say the Lord Of The Rings Trilogy, Saving Private Ryan, and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story are up there.
Favorite thing about working at Digital Brew:
So many things! First of all is the amazing team here. Everyone is so talented and friendly and just awesome. I also love the creative freedom we illustrators have when it comes to taking videos from script to animation-ready storyboards, all with different cool art styles. It allows us to really shine as artists!

What do you do in your free time?
I paint a lot. I try to do daily digital plein air paintings to practice my color theory and to get better as an artist. I also love to play soccer with friends and visit the local theme parks!
I knew this question was coming 🙂 My podcast trinity is Stuff You Should Know, Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend, and Lore.
Best thing about living in Orlando:
Theme parks, food, amazing beaches nearby, hiking/springs, food, and Black Rooster Tacos.
