A graduate of Appalachian State University with a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Design. As a way to further my knowledge out of college, I attended trade shows and learning conferences before starting a three month internship.
Following my three month internship I was employed at Glen Raven working on a Trade Show and Events Team as a Coordinator and Design Coordinator. Through this I aided the team by using my design skills to enhance the designs of the companies' booths while working with hired exhibit houses.
Some skills I have competence in include the use of Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, and Lightroom, as well as Rhinoceros and Solidworks. I also have skills in research, ideating, sketching, and prototyping during the design process. Some prototyping abilities include woodworking, metalworking, ceramics, and welding.
