Web Designer, Business Graduate, Nerd.
I get excited when someone says, "Here. Solve this." Because to me, a new challenge is a perfect thing. One that allows me to think differently about old problems, creatively about new ones, and build great relationships along the way with teammates and clients. That's the kind of hard work that will define my career.
Indiana University | Honors Kelley School of Business | 2012
- Degree: Bachelor of Science in Business
- Major: Entrepreneurship and Corporate Innovation
- GPA: 3.5/4.0
- Distinction: Kelley Honors – 1 of 150
Kelley’s Entrepreneurship program is one of the highest ranking programs in the country. The curriculum focuses on coalescing the many disciplines of business to stimulate creativity, innovation, and problem solving within the program’s graduates.
Through group projects, development of business plans, analysis of historical cases, and study of theory, the program prepared me to work within any field of business as a veracious learner, creative thinker, and dedicated team member. More importantly though, I grasped how to learn and identify solutions through self education.

- Supervisor: Brian Condradt
Connect Think is a mobile, web, and enterprise-development firm in Broad Ripple. As a member of the web team, I largely focused on developing WordPress themes and plugins for clients.

Although my role resided primarily with the web team, I also worked on a variety of projects for our enterprise and mobile teams. This included helping develop frontend templates, tablet interfaces, and data migration plugins.
Working with a forward-thinking, extremely technical team taught me about development, process, and communication while also bringing depth to my “full stack” development abilities.
