I am currently working two jobs. I have a job as a Freelance Space Planner for a company that has many retail clients. There, I am working in AutoCAD to design floorplans for stores all around the world according to different square footages and needed product quantities. For each floorplan, I am drawing interior and store front elevations. Once drawings are finalized, I am formatting them into document sheets before they are sent to the client.

My second job is as an Interior Design Assistant where I am meeting with clients everyday and assisting the Interior Designer in designing rooms, for their homes, according to their style and desired budget. I draw the client's floorplan and I help in choosing furniture and finishes to complete the design,  assemble presentation boards, as well as present the finished design to the client.

I am a very hard working, dedicated person that loves design challenges. I enjoy working through all phases of design to create a space that blows the client away. I am all about variety in project types so I can expand my knowledge and design abilities. I am looking to gain more experience and learn more about this field.
