Returning to the USA after losing both arms overseas, a young veteran battles phantom pains, prosthetics, and memories of his pre-war life while reaching for a sense of normalcy.
I am a 22-year-old director/animator/designer currently living in Los Angeles, CA!
I grew up in the small but lovely town of Moorhead, MN –– right across the river from Fargo, ND. There, I taught myself how to draw and animate around the age of 9, largely as a way to occupy my ever-expanding imagination (as well as escape from the Hoth-like winters).
I recently graduated from the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts (BA 2017), where I was able to make several films, including my thesis, Cradle.
I’m currently writing and developing a few new projects.
