…and I am part of the 2019 Product of Design program at the School of Visual Arts. I was born and raised in Canandaigua, NY, in the heart of the Finger Lakes, where I also completed a four year degree in Architectural Studies from Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva, NY. Following graduation in 2016, I was able to feed my appetite for travel by visiting some new places in central and eastern Europe, and spent my summer in a furniture maker’s wood shop honing my woodworking skill set. Prior to coming to NYC, I spent the last year in Boston, MA working in the field of graphic design. This fall I am excited to learn how to channel my design ideas through the world of Arduino!
