About 

I am a New York designer who currently attends Washington University in St. Louis, earning a Bachelors of Arts in Architecture and Art History.

Having begun my design career in high school, I have continually tried to push myself as an artist, designer, and thinker. I am interested in multiple mediums of design and love to experiment with how I can bring my architectural background into new mediums such as graphic design, product design, and fabrication.

I draw inspiration from my passion for art history and frequently enjoy studying how artists have used materiality, method, and concept to create innovative and forward-thinking art. I continually aim to bring that influence into my own design.
