My grandma tried to abort my mom, Marie, more than once, but God had a different plan. She was born in 1951 and grew up in Paris, France. My dad, Bruce, was born in 1957 in Dallas, Texas, and met my mom when he was in France studying French for school. They got married in 1981. Their first daughter, NĂ©ia, was born in France, and their first son, Christopher, was born in Texas. Their youngest children, Laura and Andrew were born after me.


I was born in 5th Army General Hospital in Bad Cannstatt Stuttgart, Germany on the 18th of November in 1988, while my dad was in the United States Army.


I grew up in the suburbs of Dallas, Texas. I was homeschooled for elementary school, and went to a private Christian School for middle school. I slept through public high school. I went to College in North Central Texas, Austin, and San Francisco.


I have loved Jesus since I was a kid. I joined the 24/7 Prayer Movement when I was on the first of two nationwide tours with theCauseUSA on the summers of 2006, and 2007, I was with the Justice House of Prayer in San Francisco from April of 2008 to March of 2009, I joined the Firebase Movement in 2014, and I started working at Jews for Jesus as a Web Designer in May of 2016.


I grew up around computers and art. My mom paints for fun, has done typesetting for a living, and now she is a edge animate designer/developer. My dad is a database administrator.

I learned how to read by playing a DOS game called Word Rescue. (Use DOSBox to run it on Mac, Windows, or Linux.)

I quickly became interested in graphics. My mom had installed a GUI for DOS called TOYBOX, and I made icons for all the games. Soon, I was customizing Windows 95, including desktop wallpapers, icons, animated cursors and more. Next I moved on to photo retouching with JASC Paint Shop Pro, and animations and websites with Macromedia Flash. It was very natural for me to transition into the Adobe Creative Suite in school. When I got curious about 3D stuff, Blender (2.5 at the time), being free and open-source, was very attractive, and fortunately, I picked it up very quickly. I messed around with Meteor a little bit, and really liked it. Then, I picked up Parse, along with Objective-C for iPhone, Java for Android, and JavaScript for Web. All this to say, I know my way around computers.

I like to listen to the Bible.


Somewhere along the way, I've become fond of Modernism and Swiss Typography, in particular, my favorite font, Helvetica. I strongly recommend Helvetica, the documentary. I'm into emojis.

I'm probably influenced by The Only Podcast In The World, the photographer Cody Rasumssen, and the graphic designer ISO50.

The only coffee I drink is Philz.

Sometimes, I use computers to make music Music.

I like Star Wars.
