Hey, again.

A little more about me, I graduated from Georgia Tech School of Industrial design in 2017, where I started as a freshman that was not so artistically inclined....I couldn't even draw a square y'all 🥲. But what I lacked in ability, I made up for by a passion of the design field. I eventually improved after years of practice and countless failures, but it taught me an important lesson along the way: iteration is key. If I continue to design/build/test any problem, it will improve. 

I truly enjoy teaching and helping others learn about design. I've been lucky enough to give guest lectures at Georgia Tech on a variety of design topics, and support thousands of students online through my skillshare classes. 

Also, if you want to know the best taco spots in Atlanta, hit me up.
