My dream is to join in on the Tiny House movement for sustainable living after I graduate from college. I have obtained my minor in Interior Design and my degree in Fine Arts is in progress. I believe simplicity and efficiency bring peace of mind. My goals are to design my own Tiny House on a mobile platform based off of my personal anthropometric measurements and to use strictly sustainable materials in the final product. Once that task is complete, I would attach the Tiny House to my truck and begin my adventures traveling across the world selling my art work. I also plan to document the entire process via blogging outlets. I believe this movement is bringing positive changes to the modern world and I would be honored to be a part of it. I would like to close with one of my favorite quotations from Into the Wild. “… but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future… If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty.”
