I am a graduate of the University of Akron with a BFA in Graphic Design accompanied with a Consumer Marketing minor. I am currently employed as a Graphic/User Interface Designer at Syracuse University in an online education department. I am always eager to learn new things and take on new challenges. I am a hardworking individual, and always strive to complete tasks to perfection. My focus and determination are just two of the many qualities I have acquired through distance running. I competed as a Varsity Cross Country and Track athlete at The University of Akron, and even served as a team captain. Running as a member of a team has showed me the value of how something so individual can affect a team atmosphere, just like working on a team as a graphic designer.
In my spare time, I have a small cookie decorating business. I create, bake, and decorate made-to-order custom sugar cookies for different occasions and events, and sometimes bake and decorate just for fun. Each cookie is a form a design, with carefully thought-out sets, color palettes, and decorating designs.
