I am a graduate of Pratt Institute with a BFA in Interior Design, and my design and administrative background is very extensive having worked for both high-end residential interior design and architecture companies in New York City and abroad. Coming from a very conceptually driven program at Pratt Institute, I feel as if it has always fostered an appreciation for experimentation within our design process. As a result, this has enabled me to continue evolving as a designer and striving to innovate. Within the last two years, I have done freelance interior design work translating spatial and design requirements in to finished environments. Independently I worked one on one with clients and vendors on a regular basis, transitioning in to where I was recently at Marie Aiello Design Studio, working as a junior designer. Being in a firm environment and working on larger scale projects has been the positive challenge and opportunity that I have immediately became accustom to, and want to continue forward with.
Highlights of my educational background that may be of interest to you include:
-Architectural drawing by hand
-Producing drawings in AutoCad
-Making layouts and editing material in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator,
-Construction and building code knowledge
-Space planning and sourcing materials and furniture
With strong communication and presentation skills, let me also note that my greatest strength is that I am an enthusiastic person ready to take on a task to efficiently execute.
With my close attention to detail, as well as my drive to constantly innovate, I am confident that my experience and personal disposition would allow me to be an asset to your company if given the opportunity.
I look forward to talking with you and welcome the opportunity to participate in a personal interview to answer any of your questions. Please do not hesitate to contact me at (704) 807 7746, or via email at email@example.com.
Thank you for your consideration.
