I am a driven young designer who recently graduated from Philadelphia University under the Interior Design Program in 2012. I have a passion for Architecture and its detail components, specifically Interior Design. Born in Washington, DC but raised in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia while traveling to various countries, I have had the opportunity to broaden my knowledge on culture, tradition, art, as well as Architecture. In addition, I have always had a great passion for Photography as they tell a story more than words. Above, you will find some of my variety projects as well as a glimpse of my work in Photography.
Upon graduation, I embarked on a 3-month journey that took me back to the motherland and other nearby countries. Currently back in the states and prior to starting my MBA, I am seeking a position in a residential and/or commercial Architecture/Interior Design firm to grow and strengthen my skills.
