I am committed to lifelong learning through intellectual, creative and personal growth—striving to inspire the next generation of creatives.

I am a graduate of the College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning (DAAP) at University of Cincinnati, with a Master of Design (MDes) degree from the School of Design. While at UC, I chaired the university-wide faculty Innovation Council, coordinated a comprehensive faculty innovation workgroup initiative and co-instructed multiple sections of a multidisciplinary undergraduate course, offered through the University Honors Program.

As an undergraduate, I studied design and communication at Bowling Green State University where I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design. I have been a member of adjunct faculty with the College of Creative Arts at Miami University, University of Cincinnati Honors Program and have taught packaging design at University of Louisville.
