Seeking a position where I can learn and grow from other designers.
For all my life I've seen myself as an artist. As a kid, I observed the world—from the salt shaker at the diner to the trees in the street—and I drew on whatever I could to take notes. While my art was mainly observational, I longed for a way to apply my creative side in communally beneficial ways. Industrial design is that way.
When I found industrial design, something clicked. I wanted to learn as much as I could by staying involved. As a team lead at Design for America, I learned how to navigate a group of diverse skill-sets. As the president of IDSA at UW, I created opportunities for our class to thrive. I am as passionate about ID, as I am making sure we all succeed together.
