About 

As a recent graduate from The Glasgow School of Art, receiving my Masters of Design in Interior Design. I am interested in continuing to build a career in Interior Design or Architecture, specifically within retail and hospitality design. Combined with a Bachelors of Science in Architecture from the University of Michigan, I personally continue to focus on architecture’s relationship with the interior environment through inspired aesthetics and functional awareness. My passion for design aligns with the desire to arouse attention and enjoyment in surrounding environments with integrity and quality. I remain consciously aware and productive, considerate of collaboration, and highly attentive to details that construct the overall impression of the finished product.
