Growing up, my creative outlet began with scrapbooking. With an entire room in the basement dedicated to my textured papers, pens and embellishments, I was lucky to have a pre-screen childhood filled with making. Oddly enough, I have no physical proof of my scrapbooking skills because every project I began and finished was a gift for someone else. I didn’t realize it at the time, but this was the beginning of my innate desire to put others first and create ways for them to visually capture their memories and experiences. This intrinsic motivation to make for others is a passion that has provided me an extremely fulfilling career as a human-centered designer.
