I was born and raised in the Tri Cities, the home of the famous Hanford nuclear development site in Washington state. My dad is a research scientist for one of the companies that work there on the site. Growing up, my parents were very supportive of my goals and ambitions, so I was blessed to have a life of openness and the ability to make my own decisions. That meant that whatever I chose to be, be it a doctor or a grave digger, my parents would support me. I've lost count of how many times I changed my mind on what I wanted to be, but I remember that one day it clicked that I wanted to make blockbuster movies. So, now here I am; pursuing a degree in Motion Pictures and Television at The Academy of Art University!
