I was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti and moved to Fort Lauderdale, FL with my family at the age of 12.
I am intermediate in speaking and understanding French. I am a very quick learner with a strong ability to pick up new skills and I thrive in a fast-paced learning environment whether I am working independently or collaboratively. I have a strong sense of design and creating spaces with a tectonic sensibility to materials and details.
