Throughout the course of my childhood I became aware of how much your surroundings can affect you. Have it be a chilling hospital room, or the inviting warmth of your grandmother's home. They leave an impact on your memories, both good and bad. I strive to create immersive content where, when needed, people can be free of their life struggles and escape into a world of magic and adventure.
