I moved to Canada at a young age from the Philippines and was partially raised in the city of Calgary, Alberta. I drew sketches and characters in my notebook during the days of my early childhood that my elementary teacher scolded me for getting distracted too easily. My fascination with drawing became a second nature for me throughout my high school and eventually lead into an important decision in my life.
I decided to pursue art as a career since I was inspired with the process of visual storytelling and development in film and gaming. I went to University of Calgary for two years in Bachelor of Fine Arts. My studies in university led to my focus of pursuing the Illustration program in Sheridan College with the support of my peers, friends, and importantly my family.
