Interaction Design, MA
I’m a graduate student in the Interaction Design program, I’m vegan, a personal trainer and I have four pets. I got my Bachelors of Arts from Columbia College Chicago as well.
TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT YOU WERE DOING BEFORE YOU CAME TO COLUMBIA.
Before coming to Columbia I worked as union costumer on film and tv shows filming in Chicago, I worked with children, was in the circus for a while, worked at Disney and Universal, adopted four pets and got my personal training certification!
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE COLUMBIA FOR YOUR GRADUATE STUDY?
I chose the Interaction Design program at Columbia because there was a one year option. I got interested in design by doing some digital design work at my job with children and I wanted to combine all of my passions to make an exercise and healthy lifestyle app for kids with disabilities. This program teaches me how to do that!
TELL US ABOUT A PROJECT YOU’RE WORKING ON THAT YOU’RE EXCITED ABOUT.
I am working on a project in my Experience Design class with a group where we are developing an app that partners with animal shelters and helps match animals that need a home with their forever homes. I am so exited about this because I love animals and I want to help as many as possible!
