I am a Visual Communication Design major at Herron School of Art + Design in Indianapolis, IN, graduating in May 2016. Born and raised in Indianapolis, I found a passion for partaking in community service and people-centered design projects around the city. As a deep thinker concerned about the future of my community, I always contemplate how my art and design skillset fits into invoking positive action. Everyday, my community is victimized by harmful issues lacking immediate attention. Finding opportunities where I can apply art and design towards greater awareness of threatening issues such as gun violence, climate change, and insufficient access to healthcare is my ultimate goal.
