In the past and on multiple occasions, I've been advised to decide the quality of life I want and to build a career around it. Did I take that advice? Nope, not immediately. It took moving to NYC for an internship at DoSomething.org, receiving a hundred rejection letters for full-time work, and shedding quite a few tears in a subway station before it all began to click. From there, I began writing a list of things I wanted to accomplish in life that weren't solely tied to money, getting real about my skills, and brainstorming ways to mesh all of those things into something that roughly resembles a career.

When not designing or freelancing as a prop stylist at the Meredith Corporation video studio [formerly Time Inc.], you can find me creating content on Undiscovered Worth. Undiscovered Worth is a multimedia platform rooted in the belief that all stories are connected through our shared human experiences. With a mission to expand the human capacity for empathy, the platform provides this opportunity through a number of personal interviews and in-person events.

Do I have it all figured out? Of course not, but I've chosen to do something that many are afraid to do. I've decided to relieve myself of the pressure to choose the more "traditional" path and instead follow my curiosity and pave my own way.
