Born & raised in the beautiful small town of Ripon, WI. I am a Marketing and design major who plans to pursue a future business career by opening my own business or helping run one. I love to travel, photography, and using my creativity for the love of people, marketing, and technology. I also continue to be fascinated by the magic that marketers and designers can make with technology. The benefits may be as simple as the efficiency gained using marketing and graphic automation or as powerful as the personal connections that social helps to facilitate. Truthfully, marketing and design has just always felt natural to me since I finally came to realization that it was what I wanted to do. I like marketing and designing because it is always changing and I can use my creativity. It is an industry that is always adapting and morphing to the tastes of the consumer which make me feel like it keeps me on my toes for new trends, styles, and colors that emerge. I love that feeling of chasing the next big idea. Years ago social media was something that only a few people knew about, now it is a global phenomena, with Facebook and other platforms reaching billions of active users, marketing and design work are now infinitely sharable to reach consumers at their own comforts. Marketing and design took a hold of all these different innovations and used them as a medium for communication which amazes me. Which brings me to the another reason why I like designing and marketing. It’s an awesome tool for communicating great messages. It brings great products to people who may or may not realize they need them which is what I want to use my creativity for!
