These were the words spoken to me by my 6th grade math teacher. At the time I didn't have the slightest idea of what that meant, I was already holding myself to a high standard. Now, I believe it is this phrase that continues to push me to be the best in everything I set my mind to.

At seventeen I left everything and everyone I knew to pursue my education at the University of Colorado, Boulder. Within four years I graduated, with Dean's List recognition, with a Bachelors of Environmental Design emphasizing in Architecture and a minor in Technology, Arts, and Media.

Even though I am no longer in school, I haven't stopped learning. My design background has lead me on an incredible journey. I currently balance my time working full time at a lighting showroom, assisting an interior designer, and various freelance projects.

If that wasn't enough, my drive, work ethic, and hint of natural athleticism has earned me a starting position on an amateur football team.

Not settling for mediocrity is my lifestyle.
