Designer (Product Design)

Member since November 24, 2007

Curently, I am a student at Parsons/Eugene Lang in the Integrated Design Department and Cultural and Media Studies. My main focus in design are multidiscipline and collaborative projects revolving around sustainability (in a broader sense than strictly enviromental) and I also work on smaller projects that celebrate the act of designing contextually accurate products and systems around different cultures and places.

I am from Louisiana and moved to Philadelphia in 2005 to attend the University of the Arts. I felt sheltered in the academic and urban setting of Philadelphia so, along with my cohort, Sarah Hyland, we moved to New York. We can frequently be found bouncing back and forth from New York to the great city of Cincinnati. Sarah and I also share a collaborative relationship under our moniker "northsouth". Keep checking the website for updates to what we've been doing...
