Biography

Storytelling is my biggest passion. Through my Games, Art and Design degree at Murdoch University, I am eager to learn how concept art and interactive narrative technologies can enhance storytelling’s mental and cultural impact. I intend to one day work as a digital concept artist to help teams envision core elements needed to create stories that can provoke thought, connection and change.

 

I have interest in a wide variety of technology-based mediums, including games, digital art, film, animation and sound. I hope to release independent projects using these mediums. The possibilities of technologies used in the creative industries, such as VR and branching story pathways, are endless. I believe healthcare, education and vocational training can all benefit through collaboration with creative minds.

 

I also enjoy writing, public speaking and the performing arts, and perhaps a little too much coffee.
