I recently graduated in December from the Academy of Art University, with a BFA in Interior Architecture and Design. I worked at two beneficial internships, one with Gensler for 2 years and another with Knoll for a little over a year, while I was currently in school. I am now working part-time at HSH Interiors. Currently I am searching for a full-time position in both the Bay Area and Los Angeles.


My broad knowledge of Interior Architecture comes from both my skills in the academic setting and my breadth of experience in the professional setting. Over the last 5 years since beginning at the Academy of Art University, I have worked on developing my skill-set in design starting from concept development and ending with finalized drawings. This past spring semester my Bakers Residence was chosen to be in the Academy of Art’s Spring show and was displayed at the Palace of Fine Arts. In December my Shipping Container Vacation Home was chosen as the winner of the IIDA’s Student Sustainable Design Competition, Peoples Choice Award. I consider myself highly motivated and truly passionate about what I do. Not only have I developed a strong sense of creative problem solving skills, but I have also learned the programs necessary to deliver professional quality designs, through proficiency's in Revit, 3DSMax, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Auto CAD.
