Maria Lorena Reyes Bahamon

Brooklyn, NY, US



I am a driven, enthusiastic, multilingual leader and team player, able to work diligently under pressure and embrace challenges. Through professional practice, I have obtained valuable skills, taking multiple projects from initial space planning, through all phases of design and project completion. This has enabled me to develop critical problem-solving and analytical skills as well as a confident character in sales, presentations, and contract administration. 

As a designer, I am  deeply interested in the effect all scales of design can have on life quality. Having lived in seven countries in four continents throughout my life, as well as participated extensively in travel education while in university, I have become increasingly interested in the comprehensive impact of architecture, urban and interior design, and the spaces, networks and relationships of the design of a city have on its inhabitants. 

My intent is to continue to grow and learn, approaching each project individually to create solutions that are thoroughly researched, thoughtfully conceived, and sustainable
