I attended California State University, Long Beach. I have studied design in both the industrial and interior architectural departments for 7 years, dedicating the last four to earning my Bachelors of Fine Art in Interior Architecture. For the past year, I have been working in Architecture, Interior Design, as well as Landscape Design. While garnering this experience, I have developed extensive technical skills as well as a vast understanding and appreciation of all aspects of design and design theory. During that time I have also been involved in the development of construction documents and agency submittal processes on projects from, corporate interiors, single-family landscapes, all the way to 65,000 sq. ft. ground-up resort ballrooms. Under my own name I have designed and built a play-house for a private pre-school, and have recently designed, created construction documents, and received city approval on a 350 sq. ft residential addition.
I have recently joined AIA as an associate as well as registered with NCARB to track my professional development. I am also extremely interested in pursuing my Masters in Architecture and feel that any professional experience would greatly enhance my success in my graduate studies as well as with my long-term career goals.

I began studying Industrial Design and followed that course for approximately 3.5 years. I realized that my true passion lie not in product design but it environments and the creation of space. I transfered my focus of study to Interior Architecture and over the next 4.5 years completed the portfolio acceptance process and continued to thrive and succeed in both Junior and Senior Studios.
