As a child I was always drawing, always discussing colors and words, I was painfully empathetic towards other individuals and animals, and I was often alone.

There are many factors of my childhood and my past that continue to speak to my creative self now. These things show insight towards my strengths as a designer and my hopeful contributions towards others.

Originally from Washington, Illinois, I now live in Chicago with my pup, Yak. In May 2015 I graduated with honors from the University of Illinois at Chicago with a major in industrial design and a minor in studio arts. I hope to continue my education in the future receiving a masters degree.
