Why am I a designer?After unknowingly creating design work throughout high school, my art teacher, Adele Knowler, pushed me to enter the MacEwan Design program. I've fallen in love with design ever since.
I like to dive into multidisciplinary settings, exploring and expressing various cultural influences, and finding the hidden creative possibilities in every marketing problem. Design allows me to pursue all of this, but in one area.
Where do I see myself in 5 years?5 years from now, I see myself learning new things, but at a higher level. Whether it is navigating through a big project, or finding out new ways to express ideas, my intention for my career is to keep learning and venture into the uncomfortable.
However, I am super ambitious in starting my own creative studio one day, and also intrigued with the idea of going down the research route due to my interests in sociology, geography, and city planning. Since design exists in all aspects of society, I hope to bring these interests into my practice one day – maybe even 5 years from now!
