Born and raised in the Chicago suburbs, I studied both Studio Art and German at Macalester College in Minnesota. Studying abroad in Germany and Austria during college gave me a deep appreciation for learning other languages and cultures. Eager to see more of the world, I joined the Peace Corps, and served in both Turkmenistan teaching English and Jordan as a youth development specialist.
I am currently pursuing a Masters of Architecture degree at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago. The skills and thinking I have gained as an artist have greatly influenced my work as an architect, and vice versa, as both fields depend greatly on complex spacial understanding, aesthetics, and visual communication.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_shop admin_label=”Shop” type=”recent” columns_number=”0″ orderby=”menu_order”] [/et_pb_shop][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]
