About 

I am an Interior Designer with experience in high end residential design and hospitality design.  I enjoy working closely with clients to achieve their ideal environments. 

I studied at Syracuse University's nationally recognized Interior Design program, and receive a well rounded education.  Upon graduating, I began working for a hospitality design firm in New Jersey.  After my time there, I began working for a high-end design firm in New Jersey, where I am currently.  Working directly under the president on the company, I have gained an invaluable education into the inner workings of a design firm and what it takes to be successful in this industry.  While my time there has been nothing but exemplary, I am now looking to project my career even further with my next opportunity.  I am looking to return to the hospitality/commercial field of interior design with a company that I can grow with.  Please feel free to contact me regarding any employment opportunities!
