Skills

My interdisciplinary background allows me to act as an effective translator to both clients and colleagues, ultimately facilitating communication of expectations, encouraging collaborative and open processes, and optimizing the resulting product. 

Design + Prototyping

Recently graduating with Summa Cum Laude honors from the University of Maryland: College Park, I studied Media Arts and Social Change as part of the Individual Studies Program.

I created this major out of my deep belief that in order to create social change, we must first understand one another. Art + design offers a unique opportunity to glimpse into our development and cultural tendencies that contribute to our sense of reality.

 

Ultimately, design is an empathetic, innovative tool that can inspire positive change in our world.

 

Within this major, I concentrated on understanding socialization and perception (psychology, sociology, human development), developing artistic techniques (art, design), and communicating through art/design to encourage social change (design management, entrepreneurship, marketing).
