Meet Your Board:
Director of Partnership | February 2016 – present
Why did you join AIGA?
I joined AIGA to be part of a community made of people who are just as eager to learn and grow as I am. I like being a part of something bigger than myself to build something great.
What inspires you?
People inspire me. Hearing about others’ passions inspires me to throw myself into my own. There is nothing like talking and collaborating with spirited and motivated people. After just an hour, you feel like you can go out and conquer the world and I think that’s awesome.
How do you AIGA?
I AIGA by being active in events and meeting new people. It’s so neat to bond with individuals who come from so many different and amazing backgrounds. I love hearing about all the cool ideas and projects going on in our community and learning about other members and their passions.
What do you like to do in your free time?
In my free time, I like to go to concerts and music festivals. I’m a huge music buff and really dig seeing artists in their element. I’m also a bit of a Netflix junkie and Twitter addict.
What’s the best vacation you’ve ever taken?
In high school, I had to opportunity to travel through Hungary, Czech Republic, and Slovakia. I was a dialectical tutor so I had the chance to hang out with kids my age and really get a feel for the different cultures. It was so great to hear new music, see new trends, and the art scenes in Budapest and Prague are absolutely phenomenal!
What advice do you have for emerging creatives?
Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there. It can be hard to do new things and meet new people but if you just push yourself a little more each day, you’ll be so happy you did. You’ll make new friends. You’ll hear about new tech or design styles. You’ll learn and you’ll have the support you need to grow.
