I have always been fascinated by design. I have been grappling with the problem of the economic inversion of growth and exploring strategies to address these fracture-critical systems. In addition, I have seen the tremendous potential in public interest design as a means for responding to natural disasters, designing sustainable systems, and creating widely accessible community resources. In alignment with helping others, I have been exploring living simplicity to reduce my impact and use the time to help others. As of right now, I serve on a number of student organizations American Institute of Architectural Students as the Website Manager and Competition Coordinator, TEDxUMN as the Director/Organizer, BDA Student Advisor Committee as the Events Coordinator, Freedom by Design Member, and Contraction Design Member.
