Currently, I am a Junior Designer at Spectrum Design Group in Pittsford, NY. In May 2012 I graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology with a BFA of Interior Design and a minor in Art History. In 2011, I participated in the Danish Institute for Study Abroad Interior Architecture Program in Copenhagen, Denmark. The DIS summer program heavily influenced my design process, personal aesthetic, and opened my eyes to a higher level of design.

I am passionate about the design and manipulation of the environment in which we live and interact. Interiors are just the beginning of my journey: Urban Planning and Landscape Architecture have sparked my interest recently. I am hoping to learn more about both of those fields as my career continues!
