My time working in the design field & traveling abroad has increased my approach to architecture & space, through understanding the beauty of cultural environments. Embracing imperfections allows me to creatively push the boundaries of what is possible. My interests in design, architecture, and graphics are incorporated into the aesthetics of my work, which encourages & challenges my ability to design outside of the envelope.
