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!

Most visited webpage:

Youtube :p

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!

Favorite podcast:

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.
