What makes you want to study design? To me, studying design is studying life. It is a wonderful blend of psychology, aesthetics,
pragmatics, and the ethereal. I study design to ultimately find my own truth, communicating my perspective to others as a part of an
ongoing dialogue. I study design to learn and to be challenged. It is my belief that by becoming a designer, I will practice a profession
where one's work and one's purpose are closely aligned — and that excites me. I want to design transparent, effective systems
that encourage and support individuals and entities.
I love color!
