Though I consider myself a lifestyle designer, one of my favorite things to learn about in my spare time is space exploration. I wanted to make my final school project one that allowed me to use my strengths as a designer while also allowing me to dive deeper into this hobby.

My capstone, Olympus Mons Mountaineering, was perfect for this purpose. Choosing this topic also had the added benefit of allowing me to challenge my own abilities in ways that traditional lifestyle design does not. I learned a lot while doing this project, and believe my skills have grown exponentially.
