UNIVERSITY OF CENTRAL OKLAHOMA SCHOOL OF DESIGN
I am an energetic and curious creative. I enjoy learning about the world around me and beyond with interest in things beyond our pale blue dot. But when down on Earth, I am doodling some new comic ideas or spending time with my friends and family.
WHERE WERE YOU BORN AND WHERE DID YOU GROW UP?
MORNING PERSON OR NIGHT OWL?
An odd mixture of both. I like staying up all night, but I also like waking up early.

Instagram; it’s the most unobtrusive
FAVORITE TV BINGE WATCH?
I don’t really binge watch TV. I occasionally watch movies when I get the chance.
Recordings of designers and illustrators talking about their experiences interest me.
My favorite book has to be the Two Towers by J. R. R. Tolkien. Battle of Helm’s deep can’t be topped!
Arrival. The twist is amazing!
FAVORITE FINE ARTIST?

As a senior, I have no free time. The idea of having free time soon, though, is mindblowing.

THE BEST THING ABOUT DESIGN SCHOOL?
Even though there is a ton of time-consuming work, the work is engaging and teaches more than just design skills. It encourages a whole new way of thinking.
