About 

Pamela was born & raised in NYC, always creative and exploring the arts.  She studied Fine Art, Photography and Art History as an Undergraduate in Albany then continued her studies at FIT achieving an Associates in Interior Design.  Pamela entered FIT for love of pillows and wallpaper but quickly changed her tune and fell in love with Architecture and namely AutoCAD and Architectural Drafting.  She had found her calling!  Quickly after graduating FIT Pamela started her first Position in Architecture and Design as an AutoCAD Drafter at Skordas Design Studio, then went on to work at Bruce Bierman Design Inc. as a Drafter and Project Manager and the rest is history!  Send me an e-mail for any design opportunities or for my architectural drafting portfolio and check out www.chicandneat.com  Best Wishes!!   Pamela  :)
