Hello! I’m an environmental science major with a biology concentration and German minor. I like singing, hiking, working with plants, and kayaking.

Paddle through Time


I had a vision in early January of a kayak and paddle within water, over a clock face. The top is acrylic and the bottom is wood, with the numbers laser cut into it. This clock tells time by the minute, holds water, and has a loon in the background.

Wind's Lighthouse


This is a transition piece from an abstract lighthouse to a windchime. To ensure the best sound, I had to consider pipe diameter, length, and thickness. I favor the sound of metal wind chimes as well. It required wood work, metal work, and laser cutting.

Interactive Scene Music Box


This music box was created with the intention of calming nerves and to entertain children. You get to pick different songs to play (by using the hand crank mechanism) and create scenes on the lid using the figures. Made with laser cutter and sewed bag

Cobra Fountain


I absolutely adore things with water, so I really wanted to bring to life my vision of a cobra fountain. Using a sump pump, TinkerCad, Thingiverse, and 3D printer, I was able to create this fountain.
