About 

I am a designer based in California. Graduated from the Academy of Art University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Architecture and Design. She does a variety of designs in branded environments, hospitality, exhibit, retail, restaurants, and residential. She has experience as a design consultant in the hospitality industry and is currently a freelance branded environment/exhibit designer. She has worked in Sydney, Australia designing P.O.P./P.O.S. fixtures and graphics for the retail environment and has also done pre-press at printing companies there. She also enjoys doing graphic design and photography on the side.

All designs begin with an inspiration that forms into a concept, which then is translated as sketches onto paper. Some design tools are used but are not limited to drafting (hand-drawn and AutoCAD), 3D rendering programs (3DS Max), Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop and hand renderings.
