Sometimes I tell people that I grew up on a guinea pig farm in Ohio. It’s more interesting than saying I grew up in the suburbs of Cleveland. I did have an unusual abundance of guinea pigs, though. Anyways, I studied advertising and graphic design at Boston University. I eat more chocolate than I should admit, but I tell myself that eating chocolate makes me more creative. It’s a privilege to have this opportunity and I can only hope to thrive in a close-knit community filled with brilliant people. Austin Kleon said, “If you ever find that you’re the most talented person in the room, you need to find another room,” so I don’t think I’ll need to find another room for a while. So far, it has felt like home here, and there is definitely value in feeling welcome. It makes me excited to start projects and ready to face new challenges. From here on out, I have a lot ahead of me, but it’s going to be a great summer.
