  • Hometown: Dublin, Ohio, USA
    • Major: Industrial Design
      • Creative Focus: Industrial Design 

Creative Journey: While I’ve always participated in multiple forms of art, from dance, to music, to fine arts, I ultimately chose to study design because of its ability to connect people through highly intentional thinking. Art will always be a personal outlet, but design is special because it pushes me to look beyond myself and create for others.

What Inspires Me: When designing, I’m inspired to push the boundary between art and design, while always considering the narrative of the person, community, or brand I’m designing for.
