I graduated from Bemidji State University with a Bachelor of Science in Design Technology this last spring. I was exposed to many different avenues of design including print, digital electronic, exhibit and model design. I also earned an Associate of Applied Science in Industrial Model Making in 2012 at the same university. I love to learn. I believe it is one of the most powerful ways to grow as an individual. Exploring the world around oneself and adventuring into the unknown are also great ways to become a well rounded human being. I am always looking for new experiences. I read, paint, draw, bake, and create in general, in my downtime. One of my many goals in life is to have a library of my own. This dream started when I was a teen and has grown substantially since. (I had to have reinforced bookshelves hung...) I love brightening the day and connecting to new characters in my own story whenever I can. I say hello to strangers and truly believe that what we put into the world, happiness for instance, will be what we are rewarded with.
