I can still remember the first books that ever excited me: The Magic Tree House series. In third grade, I read every one of those books in my teacher’s classroom multiple times until she took it upon herself to expand my horizons and foster my lifelong love of reading. That love of reading soon evolved into a love of writing, and I’ve been following that passion ever since. I majored in creative writing at Ball State, and I was attracted to Intersection because I felt like I would be able to apply those creative skills I learned to a professional career. In my summer here at Intersection I’d like to spend my time becoming a better content writer, learning some basic design tools, and meeting great people. In my spare time, you can find me reading a great book or desperately trying to keep my plant babies, June and Ester, happy and healthy.

I often refer to myself as a tinker fairy, which sounds completely ridiculous to just about anyone who hasn’t seen any of the Tinker Bell movies. It brings me joy to fix and assemble things, and I am a problem solver—much like a tinker fairy. I think my love of problem solving is what drives me to design. Being able to fix and work through visual challenges is what keeps me coming back for more. I want to be the person others go to for help with working through their design challenges. This goal keeps me striving to create better work and to gain more experience to help people. I knew that Intersection would provide a place for me to grow and thrive as a designer. In my downtime, you can catch me baking all kinds of sweets and binging Netflix original series.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been drawn to what kind of images were being used everywhere I went. When I was fifteen I began making my own photos, and ever since then I’ve been trying to capture images that draw people in the same way the photographs I love draw me in. This passion and interest is what originally led me to major in photojournalism. As time went on, I became more and more interested in how visual work is displayed in the ever-changing media space we call social media. This led me to earn my master’s degree in media analytics and management. I constantly want to learn how to make visuals better for people. I felt that at Intersection, I would have the opportunity to merge and attune these two interests by making visual content and determining how it will be displayed. When I’m not in the office, I’m more than likely at The Caffeinery enjoying some coffee and watching people live their everyday lives.
