By the time I started 5th grade, I had declared that I would be an architect.

In 2006, I started the architecture program at the University of Cincinnati; however, two experiences in 2009 set me on a different course.

In the spring, I interned at the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance and spent my free time hanging around Johns Hopkins' Digital Media Center. I went to quintessentially 'Baltimorean' events and met a mix of creatives who challenged my thinking like never before.

That summer I set off for my study abroad in Australia, where my cohort learned about environmental design as well as the diverse arts spaces in three major cities: Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane.

Flash forward to 2017, I am now living in Atlanta and working on both digital and experiential projects.

I currently work at Emory University Libraries where I design exhibitions and strategize around content and audience engagement.
