New York, NY, US




I am currently enrolled in the Interior Design Certificate Program at Parsons. Classes are great and Maharam has allowed me to concentrate on my schoolwork while also working fulltime. Still, I am looking to transition into an Interior Design firm in order to fully immerse myself in this world.

I have a good eye and I am a fast learner. I want to be surrounded by the best and learn to hone my design skills. I'm no stranger to hard work or long hours. If you think I might be a good fit in your firm, please contact me!
