Experience: I’ve interned in the past with IU Athletics helping their graphics department, I designed for non-profits promoting women and journalism, but you’ll usually find me helping startups around Bloomington for usability testings, content strategy, branding, and all that other fun human-computer interaction design stuff.

Campus Involvement: Vice President of Graphic Design Club, Team Lead Student Ambassador for SOIC, Volunteer DJ for WIUX, member of the Promotions Committee

If I could do anything, I would… travel around the world and design based on the culture surrounding me, and also create something beautiful with others.

Greatest role model: Viktor Frankl and my mother.  

Reach out to me about… integrating arts within business/technology, design critiques, hosting events on campus, human computer interaction in general (getting into the field, what to do, roles in the field, etc).
