I am currently a senior in the graphic design program at Grand Valley State University. I always look for a quiet, safe, convenient, drug/smoke-free environment with (preferably free) parking for my car on site. I am willing to trade art, design, and photography services for a discounted rate! If you would like to view my portfolio please don't hesitate to ask, even if it's just for fun!
I love the outdoors, and enjoy hiking, biking, kayaking, camping, and beach combing. I also have a passion for environmental and wildlife conservation, and have worked at a zoo for the past seven years. I enjoy reading, being around animals, movies, theatre, upcycling, Harry Potter, and snow. Traveling is also something I love to do, and two summers ago I was able to take my first trip outside the US and Canada to Ghana on a two month service-learning study abroad trip through the Honors College at GVSU, and last summer I spent in Silver Spring working for Discovery Communications. I am currently employed as a Guest Program Facilitator at John Ball Zoo (where I get to do everything from run birthday parties to give animal demonstrations) and as a Resident Assistant at GVSU. As I mentioned above I am majoring in graphic design, but I also enjoy drawing, illustration, photography, arts and crafts, and a even a bit of sculpture here and there.
