If I had to describe myself in three words it'd be: Quirky, Creative, and Technical; I love all design whether it's interior, architecture, graphic, etc. My main experience involves working at a tight-knit studio, specializing in interiors and production documents for residences and light commercial projects. Concentrating on everything from field measurements to punch lists was involved in my daily activities, as well as, assisting with the selection of finishes and products.
