Gillan Johnson

3rd Year, Environments Designer

I am an undergraduate environments designer with a gender studies minor studying at Carnegie Mellon University in the School of Design. I love the collaborative process of design and the integration of various disciplines and backgrounds into my everyday work. 

I am a contemporary dancer and am currently involved in and choreographing for Infra Dance Company, a contemporary dance group based on the CMU campus. I also hold the position of Public Relations Chair for the company, which entails creating our merchandise and branding, advertising our events, fundraising, and managing our social media sites. I have a background in fine arts, specifically in painting and drawing, and have always had a passion for the environmental sciences. I am fluent in Spanish and love traveling and immersing myself in different cultures. I hope to one day be involved in a project that combines environmental awareness, urban planning, and design within developing nations.
