About 

I am living in New York City currently working as a freelance interior designer/3D renderer. Prior to this, I was working at Kaplan, Inc. as a Junior Interior Designer in the Branded Environments department. Working there for 8 months, I learned alot about branding, space planning, and other key skills that I utilize in my design approach.

Prior to Kaplan, I was living/working in Tel Aviv. For a little over a year, I was working for Viewpoint, Ltd. doing 3D animated design work for architectural clients and real estate developers. As you will see in more detail from my resume and work samples, my experience includes both interior and exterior design work, utilizing state-of- the-art software platforms, as well as extensive client interaction and relationship building.

Prior to Viewpoint and work in New York, I graduated in 2009 from Parsons The New School of Design with an AAS degree in Interior Design.

I am a highly motivated and dedicated worker, eager to learn and to grow from those with whom I will be collaborating with. I am confidently knowledgeable in various software programs which are listed on my resume. My experience in Israel and New York has taught me alot...... and is a great base upon which to expand as I grow professionally.

I love design and believe in my natural abilities. As such, I would welcome the possibility of exploring opportunities you may have to offer.

Thank you for your time.
