As a child, the phrase 'don't sweat the details' never seamed to apply to me. I was always a slow test taker. At one point, it got so bad that a professional analyzed my testing habits. The issue, as it turns out, was that I prioritized doing the problems well over doing them quickly. Such meticulous tendencies eventually lead me to pursue user centered design. Although certain problems appear small, their impact can extend far beyond what one would expect. 

I am currently studying Design at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA. I am also interested in the intersection between technology and design and am pursuing additional studies in Human Computer Interaction and Computer Science.
