Describe yourself in 3 words.

If you weren’t a Designer, what would you be?
I think I’d be a chef. It’s like being a designer, but with a result you can eat.

If you had to pick a walk up song, what would it be?
Don’t Stop Me Now – Queen

What is the last show you binge watched?
Stranger Things

If you were an emoji, what emoji would you be?




What are you afraid of?
I think I’m irrationally afraid of being struck by lightning.

Breakfast, lunch or dinner? Support your answer.
Dinner. It’s usually the only meal of the day I don’t rush through. Plus, I am a big proponent of Thai cuisine, which just seems like dinner food to me, I guess.

How do you take your coffee?
Through the mouth and into my belly. I don’t discriminate. Usually black, though.

Best place in the world that you have visited and why?
Lalibela, Ethiopia. Of the places I’ve visited, it is by far the place with a culture the most different from my own. It was definitely a life-changing experience, and it permanently affected my worldview.

What is your Kansas City hidden gem (bar, restaurant, etc)?
The Ship in West Bottoms

Why MBB?
As a designer, it’s always a pleasure to work with people who are kind and are going to push you to do great work. Plus, there was the promise of seeing doggos in the office every now and then, which really completes the package.
