UNIVERSITY OF CINCINNATI (DAAP)

I am currently a fourth year student studying Graphic Communication Design. I believe in a strong work ethic, and am prepared to put in the work to achieve my goals. I am thankful for having the opportunity to attend DAAP and to participate in the co-op program. I have had the chance to travel to New York City to work with two great companies and many great people. Apart from design, I love to cook, eat and to try new things. I also have two of the most adorable dachshunds back home.
