About 

I graduated from Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) with a degree in Interior Design. I also have an engineering degree from Cooper Union and have experience working in various fields ranging from finance to architecture. I am currently working as a designer and project manager for a small construction company in New York.

During my tenure at FIT and at an architecture firm, I’ve been involved in different phases of designing various interior spaces, my responsibilities ranging from conceptualization all the way to production of renderings and construction documents. I also have experience working with clients and vendors and consider organizational skill to be one of my stronger traits.

To further my practical knowledge in the field, I chose to work in a small construction company upon graduation. I consider it a valuable experience as I gained firsthand experience on construction procedures and realized the importance of prioritizing workloads and meeting deadlines.
