I am an architectural designer currently specializing in luxury branded environments, stemming from years of retail design experience. With a Master and Bachelor of Architecture from Tulane University, I have a balanced skill set of both the technical and conceptual. While concept development is where my passion for this field lies, I have ensured that in my professional experience I have focused on building my skills of construction documentation, detailing and project management from preliminary through construction phases.
