I am a recent graduate with a Master of Architecture degree from Louisiana State University. During my graduate studies, I developed a strong interest in housing and urban design after spending a summer at the LSU College of Art and Design Rome program studying the urban condition in Rome and a third year studio that concentrated on a 2000 plus unit housing project in Berlin, Germany. I also developed important skills in construction documentation, code research, and strengthened my commitment to sustainable design.
Prior to returning for my graduate degree, I worked over six years in the senior living and hospitality sector where I completed multiple interior design projects in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Germany. During this time I developed exceptional skills in FF&E selection and procurement, project administrations and installation management, becoming the main interior designer for the German properties. I also have four years of experience as a production graphic designer, where the skills I developed in this role helped me develop my unique graphic and representational style that uses both analog and digital techniques.
