I’m a 21 year old sculpture student attending Herron School of Art and Design in Indianapolis, Indiana.
I’ve been making stuff since I was about 13 years old. It all started when a friend of mine sent me a webpage that outlined instructions on how to build your own lightsaber hilt from plumbing parts. From there things escalated quickly. I completed my own lightsaber, but found myself thirsty for more. The next few years became something of a game to me. I was obsessed with finding things I could build, if I had a good reason or not. It was never about building things for the pleasure of having them, but building things just to prove that I could, and it wasn’t that I needed to prove something to others, but to myself. My methods were chaotic and my supplies were cheap. As a result of my haphazard way of learning things through trial and error, I found myself knowing a little bit about everything. I continued building things, mostly movie and video game props. Ideally I would love a job in prop and set design someday, but with my ever changing interests, there’s no telling where I’ll end up in 10 years.
