While preparing for graduation in 2014 from St. John Fisher College in Accounting, I was nervous and confused. "If I follow through with Accounting, I will never know how good I could have been. My drawing skills will go to waste. I will not be using my creative problem solving skills. There will be no opportunity to achieve something truly amazing, even revolutionary. Why am I doing this?" This was my train of thought before making the leap over to Industrial Design. Now, I am in the Industrial Design Masters Program at the Rochester Institute of Technology, one of the top ten programs in the world.

It was interesting to me to learn about design after already graduating in a non-design field. The concepts I have learned, such as the design thinking process, can be applied to directly to solving business-related problems. I am astounded that these concepts are not being taught to business majors, as I believe they would be extremely beneficial.

I entered the field of Industrial Design with the hopes of making people's lives easier and more enjoyable. My ultimate goal would be to create things that allow people to go beyond what they thought was possible. I am interested in the tools that enable creative endeavors: the pencil, the guitar, the snowboard, etc. I would like to develop something that enables the user to be creative in amazing ways, beyond what they have previously dreamed they were capable of. Along the way I plan to learn as much as I can from the opportunities that are available to me in order to become a more well-rounded designer. Read Less
