My passion for art and film early in life ultimately led me to pursue fine art and photography at the University of California Irvine. I continued studies at the Art Center School of Design, where I focused on motion design. Immediately after graduating, I started working at Imaginary Forces. I worked my way up from a designer to an art director over the course of 12 years. Over the course of my tenure at IF, I directed and designed title sequences for films such as 500 Days of Summer, Beautiful Creatures, A to Z and The Tourist. I also art directed multiple branding campaigns for the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles and was the creative lead on commercials for such clients as Toyota, Microsoft, AT&T, Walgreen, Lagoon, Kens and Korean Air. My work on Toyota Love in a Mile won the silver award at the 35th Annual Telly Awards.
