What are your plans for the future?

I plan to look for work that can expand on my interest in motion graphics, research, and marketing.

Describe a defining moment in your time in the School of the Arts.

Earning a UGRA and a SOTA Grant for my self-conceptualized research felt like a moment where I was proud to be a Jayhawk and the university was proud to have me as a student.

What has influenced your creativity here at KU?

 My coworkers at KU Marketing & Communications including Trevor Mowry, Andrew Lee, Meg Kumin, Andy White, Emma Jensen, and Tim Seley consistently inspired and celebrated my creativity in and out of work. I wouldn't have the confidence in myself and my work without them.
