why design matters?
Design has a huge impact on society and the world. As designers, we impact people’s quality of life, attitudes, interactions, and health, and because of this we need to always be thinking of people and continually better ourselves and our industry to serve them.
why bdh+young rules?
bdh+young fosters an environment for people to thrive. There is a wide variety of people within the company and flexibility built in for people to find their niche and love what they do. So far, I have felt welcomed and like I am stepping into a great environment that will help me grow as a young creative.
favorite hobby and why?
Favorite hobby? Gosh it might be a tie. I love gardening or planting because I can be outside all summer and then try to keep things alive throughout winter. It’s also so rewarding and calming to see things grow new life and to take time out of my day to appreciate nature. The other hobby is crafting. I love the challenge of taking on a new project, usually as a gift for someone, so I must do it as well as I can the first time. There are so many different mediums to explore and experiments to try!
best movie ever and why?
Anne of Green Gables/Anne of Avonlea. Such a classic, has humble roots and kindred spirits. I love the scenery, the characters, the romance, the way they lived life back then, and the storyline is just gold. It’s a classic, watch once a year, usually in fall, type movie. It is a dream of mine to head up to Prince Edward Island and experience the beauty first hand.
when I'm not at work, I like to...
Be with friends and family, go to farmers markets, hike, bike, run, read, garden, lead bible studies and discipleship groups or work on my craft projects.
