Raised in a cloud of sawdust, my life was crafted out of wood, laughter, and exploration. Daughter of a maker, I was scheming up fantasy lands and building them in the trees outside my dad's house at a very young age. Inside the house, I served as construction assistant and resident design consultant at the age of 8 for the life-long project of my father's home. My love of design and making has taken me through nerding out in geometry class in high school to studying architecture school for seven years (go vols.) Today, I am a designer at many scales, from 2D graphics to the city scale in urban design. I love the art of translating an idea into reality and that takes many forms. During the day, I am a translator of "archi-speak" to people who want to learn about architectural education at the ACSA where I design graphics for our campaigns, conferences, and competitions. By night, I love working with friends designing graphics, taking photographs, and building little things. I'm an explorer and love to travel. I'm a collector of ideas, songs, and landscapes. 

Ask me about the "little bird" thing... It's a longer story.
