Most memorable design school project?

First real world client in school was an ice cream shop trying to move out of their truck and into a brick and mortar in Church Hill. After working at an ice cream shop for 6 years, it was an amazing opportunity to lend my knowledge on ice cream and design to a real business!

I’ve killed a lot of house plants but I would love to try my hand at gardening!
