Born and raised in North Texas, I'm now spending my third year in Pittsburgh as an industrial design student at Carnegie Mellon. Nothing gets me more excited than interacting with a polished, well-conceived object – the type of products that I seek to make as a designer.

Currently, I'm honing the drawing and making skills that I first started developing designing architecturally-inspired furniture in high school. I'm also taking advantage of the technological trove of knowledge at CMU, with a special interest in digital media, rapid prototyping, and physical computing.

When not in the studio, I’m probably behind a camera, cooking, or visiting a museum.
