design + illustration

About

I'm a communication designer currently studying at the School of Design at Carnegie Mellon University, where I'm also minoring in Human-Computer Interaction. Besides my studies, drawing is (and has always been) my perpetual side project, and I'd also like to pursue illustration & comics in the future.

Different kinds of narrative & storytelling have always fascinated me. I'm interesting in seeing how they would play into the field of design, whether that means design that tells a story or design that considers the stories of the people who use it.

In the spare time that I don't spend drawing I might be reading obscure Wikipedia articles, tinkering with Twitter bots, or looking at pictures of birds.
