For seven years I have been working as a project manager and interior designer on multi-million dollar hospitality projects located around the world. I have experience in taking projects from concept design to 100% construction documents and through completion. I am very knowledgeable about the program and design requirements for all types of hospitality spaces, including casinos, lobbies, restaurants, bars, lounges, cashier cages, spas, retail shops, ballrooms and convention areas, private and high limit gaming spaces, public restrooms, and hotel rooms and suites.
During my career I have worked on both new construction and interior renovation projects. Clients include The Venetian Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, NV, Galaxy Casino Resort in Macau, China, Thunder Valley Casino Resort in Lincoln, CA, MGM Grand Ho Tram Resort & Casino in Vietnam, and Solaire Casino Resort in Manila, Philippines.
Working in a fast-paced environment has taught me to work efficiently and coordinate with others to ensure projects are completed successfully and on time. I am passionate about interior design, architecture, and creating unique high-end spaces that meet the needs and expectations of the client. In addition, I have been a LEED AP BD+C since 2009.
