I am a junior at Iowa State University studying Apparel Design and Industrial Design. Having a background in industrial design gives me a unique approach to the apparel design process, with a heavy focus in consumer and market research, as well as strong presentation and problem solving skills. My love of apparel, my eye for fashion, and a strong empathy for consumers in terms of form and function is reflected in my designs. Ultimately my goal in life is to become an exponentially skilled designer. With a love of apparel and a strong work ethic I believe this goal can be achieved and will lead to the creation of beautiful things for others.
