About 

I am a senior in the interior design program at Purdue University looking to start a career in commercial design.  Born and raised in Tucson, Arizona, I attended college at Purdue University in Indiana seeking an adventure and hoping to expand my design knowledge from the southwestern elements I had grown up with.  I was able to extend my desire to travel and experience design vernacular further with a summer internship in Massachusetts.

My hope for my career is that I can create designs that will evoke a feeling of comfort and transendence from the norm in spaces for everyday use.  My strong organizational skills and consistent desire to learn something new have permitted my design vocabulary to continue to grow and solidify.
