Film, special effects, and engineering have always been fascinating for me. I graduated form the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee in December of 2016 with a degree in Film, Video, and New genres as well as a minor in Art and Design. I'm primarily a fabricator with most of my experience in hands on construction in steel, wood, various other materials. I started out with Blacksmithing in Highschool which then transitioned into armorsmithing. My freshman year of college I began making my first suit of armor which has become the character that is Rook. My goal was to create a unique suit that could double as a character in films and performances. Alongside the armor work I've pursued interests in Directing, Prop making, Set Design, Rigging, and both Special and Visual effects. It is a major goal for me to create a large budget feature film involving my character Rook.
