I'm the kind of person that likes to explore what life has to offer. Making life interesting is half the fun of being in this world, so why not take chances? There's a sincerity and pleasant vulnerability in placing yourself in new settings every so often, and with each of these opportunities the chance to learn something new.
Being from the suburbs of Chicago, I've had engrained in me since I was young that well-known midwestern charm and work ethic. I stayed close to my roots by attending Iowa State University as an advertising and apparel merchandising double major. I've grown to love and respect where I come from, but now I'm looking for the next big adventure.
As I set foot into "adulthood", I strive to keep my curious mind alive through my love of people and creativity. It's strange how big the world can seem, but how small it truly is. Creativity is one of the few but very powerful things that can keep us connected. I want to use my work as a way to show people those connections and give light to worlds of culture they may have been blind to before.
It's important to continue trying to understand the world we live in and I'm looking to be a part of those who look to forge out new territories.
