Major: Psychology
Minor: Visual Arts
Visual Designer, Al Jazeera Media Network: Digital Division

“Both my Bowdoin major and minor have been critically influential to the work that I do. I received my MFA in design after attending Bowdoin, where I developed a specific skillset in graphic design, built upon my undergraduate foundation in drawing and printmaking. My liberal arts background equipped me with a propensity for writing and interest in the human condition; these traits were paramount to my success in graduate school, and continue to inform my success in professional settings. My work is both strategic and creative; although this was not necessarily my intended path, psychology and visual arts have influenced by ability and passion to move back and forth between two distinct modes of working.”
