About 

Hello friends!

I am Samantha from beautiful San Diego, I graduated from The Art Institute of California's Interior Design program with a Bachelor's degree in Fall of 2011. I have been in love with art and design from an early age, although I was leaning towards a biology degree at first, I quickly changed my mind and began my career as a fine artist, which then lead to interior design. So far I have had interesting job leads from where I have learned and gained so much experience from, including Aesthetics, a healthcare architecture and design firm with multiple projects nationwide. Mixture, a high end ultra modern showroom. Ashley Furniture, where I was a visual designer for over a year, and Living Spaces Furniture doing special order sales. 

As of now I hope to expand my professional network in order to accomplish my career goals. I want to see my career take me to different places, exploring various opportunities, and most importantly to learn from other artist and gain as much knowledge as I can. Design is a beautiful career that keeps on giving, and it is very important to stay updated with your surroundings, but like anything else, a strong foundation is essential, that is why I value the experience others have to offer.
