I have a history in animation and visual effects and have always been fascinated by how things work. This interest has found me in front of and behind a film camera, but my focus has always been visual effects and creative narratives.  I have experience designing UX/UI, which has been fascinating, as I enjoy studying how people interact with technology.

From a young age, I’ve been deeply interested in computer science cutting my teeth on the Dragon 32 and NES home console, but Neurodiversity has allowed me to carve a more creative pathway through this field of research.
