Always drawn to the connections I can make with my creativity. The process of research, discovery, iterate on the road to solving that puzzle and connecting people with an experience that pushes me.
I strive to communicate outwardly as well as absorbing all I can from life’s experiences that broadens my horizon whether it be a conversation, culture, activities, getting lost or watching someone else get lost. My empathy, curiosity and resourcefulness allows me to reveal questions needed to be asked. Understanding is the first step to creating something useful and engaging. In this understanding I am able to dissect an experience and my creativity drives me to piece together that puzzle.
