Mental Health PSA

'Historic' Cheerios Commercial

I researched, storyboarded, filmed, and edited this PSA in two days. It was lots of fun and I am pretty happy with how it came out. Looking back on it, I'd love to remake it with the technical skills that I know now.

Looking back and watching this makes me laugh. In highschool I had to design a Cheerios box taking on an Art Deco style. I printed it out on regular letter-sized paper and folded it up. I put some real cheerios in it and thought it was hilarious how large they looked, especially in a picture with no context. They were like giant bagels pouring out of the Cheerio Box! I got my smallest cups and utensils and went to work making a silly little commercial. My favourite part is when the 'coffee' spills as I pour it out.

A Cactus Trilogy

You may have seen in the Digital Art section my illustrations of these cacti. After illustrating them, I thought they would look cute if I animated them. I gave them simple loop motions and brought them to life!

Creating a Game in Unity Engine

I've always wanted to create my own game! There was really nothing stopping me except time. There are amazing game engines that are free, so I chose to work with Unity and learn C#. Creating pixel art and sprite sheets were super fun and easy, so I was able to create a couple of assets for me to learn to code with. Learning the code was challenging but I love a good challenge. My main goal with this project was to learn how to use Unity and code efficiently enough so that I can put more time and effort into designing a full-fledged game.

I Love Animals

Okay, this isn't really tech-related, but here are some picture of the animals in my life. If you know me, you will know that I have pictures of these amazing little creatures on hand 24/7 to show off to everyone. All but 2 are rescue animals!

3D Sculpting

I started to teach myself how to use Blender, a free 3D modeling software. I made a little shrine (right) for a game I would like to make some day. I decided that I needed some help learning how to use the software and I looked on Youtube for a tutorial so I could learn some basics. I followed along and put my own little spin on the doghnut and mug (left). I like to think that a detective was eating this in a dark and ominous interrogation room. I can't take credit for that project because it was from a tutorial.
