About 

I'm an emerging professional, about to graduate from Arcadia University with a BFA in interior design with a minor in art history and an additional focus in printmaking.  I have lots of experience with graphic design as well.  I've worked at Amanda Nisbet Design in Manhattan on luxury residential projects as an intern and am looking to continue in this field, or in hospitality.  I have just finished my senior thesis, a self-directed project on nightlife, restaurant and hospitality design.  I also enjoy textile design, and have screen printed my own wallpapers, as well as been a finalist in a carpet design competition.
