I’m a multidisciplinary designer who loves learning new things that help me to think, see, and create in different ways. I love that something I’m working on in a letterpress studio or through a photography project has the ability to influence the way I see spaces I’m designing within an architecture studio and would love to be able to continue reaping the benefits of multidisciplinary design work. 

I get really excited about working on projects that make people happy and respond to what they want or need and am drawn to design fields that allow for a thoughtful and honest creative process. I love that architecture and graphic design allow me to work with (and for) people in creative capacities.
