MFA Design, UC Davis
The last 8 years I have been designing and making furniture. I studied at the renowned Krenov School (formerly, the College of the Redwoods Fine Furniture program) for two years and moved to Santa Cruz to start working professionally and independently. It was great fun and I was able to explore my creativity and make a lot of fantastic pieces. That said, I felt like my impact was negligible on communities greater than the few consumers of my goods. Inspired to make a bigger impact with my skills and passions, I have come to UC Davis looking to expand on my background in furniture design. Potential leads are product design for low or underprivileged communities, opportunities to improve low-incoming housing or something else I haven’t imagined yet!
