For me, design is problem solving. I enjoy thinking strategically, organizing information, and making beautiful things. I believe that good design is clear, meaningful, and timeless and I strive to achieve those ideals through my work.
My passion for design has afforded me many unique experiences. In 2010 I studied design in Switzerland at the Schule für Gestaltung, St.Gallen. In 2012 I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh with a BFA in communication design and an
additional concentration in history. Most recently I completed an 18 month fellowship, living on the desert campus of Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin West in Scottsdale, Arizona working as the inaugural Design Fellow with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. While
immersing myself in the Taliesin community I helped the Foundation improve its visual communications to visitors, donors, and community members. I currently work at the design consultancy, ThoughtForm in Pittsburgh, PA.
I consider myself fortunate to have these opportunities which have each had a tremendous impact on my life and have helped form my thought process and approach to design work.
In addition to design, I also have many side interests including architectural history, urban planning, community service, and piano. In my spare time I enjoy drawing, playing music, and following baseball.
