I have graduated from Cornell University in May 2013, and have commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the US Army Reserves as an Engineering Officer. I am interested in exploring all types of interior design opportunities, from government projects to installations and want to gain the NCIDQ license. I look forward to being part of a team where I can utilize my training and skills to provide quality design through significant projects.
