About 

I am a self-starter who is enthusiastic about all areas of design and architecture. I have been in the field for over 8 years with experience in residential and commercial interior design and residential architecture. Great multi-tasking skills, heavy on communication and have a strong attention to detail. I have a natural eye for color, texture, balance and space planning.I have a very strong work ethic and strive to execute projects efficiently and in a timely fashion.  I absolutely love working in with computer programs and the team work that is involved in working on projects.
 

I would like to add that I am currently studying for the IDEX (California Council for Interior Design Certification) in October 2012 to be a licensed Interior Designer in the state of California.  As well as the NCIDQ (National Council for Interior Design Qualifications) in October 2012 to be licensed nationally as an Interior Designer. I have also just been asked by the Art Institute of California – San Diego to be a juror on their student critique panel.
