While attending Auburn I was able to work is studios with American Greeting Card International, Emerson Tool Company, Thermo Fischer Scientific, and Knaack. I was also able to participate in a study abroad program, where I was spent 3 months in Kaohsuing City, Taiwan taking classes at Shu Te University. While there, my class participated in several design conferences, worked in a collaborative studio with Shu Te students and took course in traditional crafts (glass work, painting, metal work, and pottery)
