Oh hey! Hi! Didn’t see ya there!

In my time at the University of Cincinnati, I’ve been lucky to have a wide range of professional work experiences. I’ve been fortunate to work for corporate giants such as Boeing, Proctor & Gamble, Pfizer, and Kryptonite as well as getting down and dirty at Rookwood Pottery and UC’s very own Rapid Prototyping Lab. My experiences today have led me to a dive in the freelancing world and have allowed me to comfortably explore my entrepreneurial spirit.

For my capstone, I’m designing a safer alternative to fast roping for soldiers deploying from helicopters.

I remember sitting down to see the premier of Ironman in 2008. I loved that movie, and what stuck with me was Tony Starks’ workshop. I instantly knew what I wanted to do when (if) I ever grow up: I want to push the boundaries of what we think is possible and bring it all to life.

You know what’s exciting? Differential equations. Just kidding. That’s why I’m not an engineer, and landed at DAAP. Over my five years at UC, I’ve been fortunate to learn about how design and applied creativity can solve just about any problem.

When I’m not busy shooting a puck around, watching movies, playing trivia, bumping Wu-Tang Clan, or face down in a plate of poutine, you can probably find me fleshing out my next crazy idea. This week’s idea? Shoe wallets.
