I am a "design-nerd." I geek out, notice, talk about, and create design. I love finding ideas and reasons to make good design possible. I am an obsessive designer, integrated thinker, and a passionate learner. I am interested in the way design requires a higher level of creative thinking. My process involves many scribbles and sketches (fueled by lots of coffee) to find solutions in the direction of an innovative and unique end-product or visual experience. I am excited to pursue more brand strategy, design research, and illustration projects focused on creative design thinking in the next year.
Why I am in love with design:
Challenges me to think creatively to find solutions
Work hard and play hard are environments I thrive in
As a detail oriented perfectionist, this field quenches that thirst
Finding the cultural context for design leaves me crazy geeked out
Act of designing and creating things genuinely makes me happy
I pride myself on my ability to stay organized, maintain a sense of humor under stressful situations, and my ability to search for solutions.
In my free time, I love trying new local restaurants downtown, going to the zoo, visiting museums, painting, cooking up some delicious foods, and laughing at the comedy club.
