COLLEGE FOR CREATIVE STUDIES

I am currently a sophomore studying Communication Design at College for Creative Studies in Detroit MI. I am really interested in motion design and title design, as well as communication design in the film industry. As I finish up my first semester as a sophomore, I’m going to start applying for internships for this coming summer. I’m also planning a Women in Design club on campus with my friends to bring to light the issues that many women face in the design field. When I’m not putting my blood and tears into my classwork, I’m watching The Office and drawing on the side.
