I am a graduate from Academy of Art University’s BFA program of interior architecture + design and I'm interested in making beautiful things happen. I currently work on the the World Trade Center retail construction project as a BIM coordinator involved in the complex delivery from virtual construction practices to a built environment in construction.
I worked as an in-house industrial designer for an architectural metal fabricator from 2010 until the end of 2011 learning much about the fabrication industry. Prior to my employment as an house-designer at Gratz Industries I worked with them as an independent contractor focusing on concept design and development for their products and branding. I have also worked for Forrest Perkins- a hospitality interior design firm where I gained experience in material sourcing, research, vendor interaction and FF&E preparation. While in school I worked as a design assistant to a landscape designer where I performed residential client consultation, contractor/ builder interaction and created design development drawings.
My multidisciplinary experience has helped me develop a wider design + construction understanding to apply to my endeavors.
