I have recently completed my MFA in interior design at Parsons the New School for Design. I also hold a Masters in architecture. I am a LEED certified designer with 10 years of work experience at well-established architectural firms in the Middle East and the US. My interest in designing people’s immediate environment in accordance with their social and cultural context to maintain their  well-being underpins my design work.
