Growing up in New York City, my exposure to art and culture from a young age fostered my enthusiasm for photography and design. As a Senior at the University of Michigan School of Information, I am currently studying User Experience Design. 

Over the past few years, I have developed an interest in graphic design. Starting as a junior in high school, I joined my school's yearbook staff as a graphic designer. I loved being the Chief Graphic Designer of our award-winning yearbook for two years. This job really helped me to further my skills with Adobe Creative Suite, and it led me to develop a passion for graphic design. In 2017 I took on the role of the Managing Design Editor of The Michigan Daily and worked several nights of the week on page layout and graphic creation.

Photography has always been something that I enjoy doing as a hobby. I love travelling, and many of my photographs have been taken abroad, from countries such as India, Australia, Hong Kong, and more!
