I'm a recent graduate and I feel lucky to be starting my career at a time when design has become so interdisciplinary. While my background is in interiors and furniture, my interests range from urban design to lettering to technology. I'm very comfortable using digital tools for design, but I also love drawing, making collages, taking photos and using words to drive my creative process.
As a born and raised New Yorker, I have always been intrigued by cities and the way design affects city life and vice-versa. My master's thesis addressed the design of a pedestrian arcade on Roosevelt Island (where I grew up), exploring how the interior/exterior space could serve the community as more than just a path for circulation.
