About: I am a senior at IUPUI studying Informatics with a focus on Human-Computer Interaction. I was born and raised here in Indiana. I enjoy exploring the city, playing with my dogs, and spending time with friends and family in my free time.

Coming into college, I wanted to study something in the technology realm that allowed me to be creative. I developed an interest in working with new and up-and-coming technology from taking classes in my high school, such as web design, programming, and engineering design. Informatics seemed to be the perfect blend of all of these topics.

I am happy with my choice of pursuing Informatics because I have been able to explore topics that I find interesting, interact with students and professors who are passionate about their field, and tailor my degree plan to my career goals. Through this, I have been able to grow personally, academically, and professionally. In the future, I hope to continue being in the IT field, helping people be successful through technology.
