About 

Over the last year in graduate school, I focused my time on studying children and identity. How children develop and are impacted by the people and environment has always fascinated me. By studying the impact the developing aspects of identity have on children, I became much more aware of the meaning of the graphic world and art. This awareness has led me to become passionate about graphics and the different ways one can manipulate an identity via a simple image or the built environment. My new hobby of screen printing has also allowed me to test this aspect of the world in which we live. 

In general, I am a very energetic individual looking to test and explore the world. Other hobbies of mine include: spending time with my dog Oliver, playing tennis, biking, and running.
