I'm a strange creature in that everything I do for a living is also the thing I love. Drawing, writing, sculpting, designing, filming, and world-building, are irremovable from what is essentially the core of my being, and my work spawns from a burning desire to report my findings about the Universe I live in and how I've come to understand it.
