I am a visual designer and photographer with a B.A. in Graphic Design from DePaul University. I am currently pursuing my Master of Arts in Sustainable Design at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.

As I have advanced in my career, I have been increasingly driven to utilize my skills in visual communication and user experience to their full potential, helping to promote the design of more sustainable and restorative systems. As I develop my knowledge of environmental and social sustainability issues and design frameworks, I hope to partner with like-minded organizations that wish to improve their sustainability and communication initiatives.
I aim to advocate for the following core values and goals within my coursework:
•    Accessibility and inclusion - encouraging both human and life-centered UX
     that makes the more people/planet-friendly options both more desirable and
     more accessible, rather than something perceived as expensive, difficult, or
     reserved for certain demographics
•    Adaptation and resilience in the face of climate issues - designing solutions
     that move away from the overwhelming and helpless feeling many associate
     with the climate crisis, and making people feel more empowered to take steps
     in their own lives, while being a positive influence on others
•    Joy and a passion for the natural world - shifting the narrative around the    
     climate crisis to include more positivity, in order to provoke a sense of curiosity
     and help instill passion and a motivation to stay engaged
