I am currently a junior at the University of Notre Dame, studying English with a concentration in creative writing, and film. I also love to draw, play music, and pretty much do anything to create creative content.

At the moment my creative energies are mostly focused on a sci-fi trilogy that follows a young android as she comes to terms with the fact that her human "father" and "sister" are not actually related to her. Most of the characters in the sketches below belong to that universe.

Schattenvolk

Jun lives the average life of a high school girl, complete with boring classes, cute boys, and her shadow falling in love with her. Wait, what? This animatic was chosen for the University of Notre Dame 2017 Film Festival.
