I am a graduate of Northeastern University School of Architecture in Boston, Massachusetts. I'm very interested in modern design, interior architecture, and sustainability. I opened my own small business, EMERSON \ WHITE design (www.emersonwhitedesign.com), in October 2011 with two partners and we recently completed our first project which began in January 2011 and ended January 2012. We are currently working on our second project which is a small scale historic renovation project and addition in Winchester, Virginia.
National Geographic Channel, Interior Architect
I was commissioned by the National Geographic Channel to design a small renovation project of one of their private business lobbies. My duties include designing and space planning the 1790 square foot lobby in all aspects (lighting, furniture choices and layout, interior design elements, paint colors, etc). I also am in charge of meeting vendors and contractors, working with engineers on technical drawing sets, creating presentation and material boards, and assisting with purchase orders, and specification booklets.
