I have recently graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University, earning a Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts and majoring in Graphic Design. Throughout the program I gained an interest in user experience, coding, and web design - and worked to incorporate different programs and styles into my work to further explore this interest. Currently, I am working towards a Google User Experience Design Professional Certificate with the intention to develop websites and other web applications that translate a design vision into a workable interface. Combining my design background with the technical knowledge of user experience will allow me to reach a broader audience of users and clients while utilizing all the elements of Design I enjoy. Beyond my design interests, I enjoy working out and being active, whether it's hiking and being outdoors or boxing at the gym. Many of my undergraduate projects drew inspiration from the outdoors or active lifestyles, and it has been exciting to take the "everyday" and make something beautiful out of it.
