I graduated from Pratt Institute with a MS in Interior Design in 2011 and a BA honor Interior Design from the Glasgow School of Art in Scotland. I have 3.5 years working experience in NYC, having experience in programming, concept design, space planning, FF&E specification, construction document, detail design, 3D rendering, presentation and etc. I'm very proficiency and organized, can create ideas quickly and complete the task on time.

I am well versed in numerous computer aided design programs and I am more than proficient at hand sketch renderings. I have been involved with art since a very young age, using various mediums and techniques. Over 15 years of art experience has sharpened by eyes and mind to color, material and space.
