     Design is solving challenges while crafting enjoyable space.  I'm passionate and eager to orchestrate spaces with life, and personality.  I love to ideate, share ideas, strengthen them, and bring them to fruition.  As an interior design alumna of the CCA architecture department I have been given the tools to think conceptually, and develop designs using 3D technology.  

    I supplement my passion for design with Civic Hacks, various MeetUps, Tech workshops, CCA Architecture lectures, seminars, and cycling and hiking through San Francisco.  I laugh a lot, dream while I'm awake, and aim to inspire others through my passion, drive, and big smile.

I meet with designer and clients, consult to develop design needs and scheme and shop in person with clients as well as online sourcing. Sarah and I begin with a daily project review and then work independently. When there are products or presentations to review we often finish the day with a recap.

Tasks involve client Meetings, site visits, concept design, design proposal, presentation boards, CAD plans and elevations, RCP, space planning, 3d design, product sourcing, custom furniture design, materials specifications, project budgets, estimates, purchasing, PO’s and invoicing.

CCA Design Charette, 1st Place

The Fall warm up charettes are to prepare us for the fast rigorous semester ahead. This is a 4 day design build small team project and competition with all Architecture Department students.
Concept is to come up with a design based on inhabitable inflatable structures made out of semitransparent materials and tape. We were given air blowers if needed.
Our design was inflated and spanned 20 feet tall and 50 feet long with varied sections of narrow to wider spans through its length.
Our final concept was based on a dinosaur carcass shape and proposed as a semi private/public space to sit on, climb through, lay underneath, or over. We competed against approximately 35 other teams and took first place.


Architecture Division Interior Design 2nd/3rd Year Book Award, 1st Place

Studio Practice, Level 1, Design for Dolores Housing Project

The above web link was prior to my award, but offers introspect to the details of our studios project. The award was given in ceremony at Timken Lecture Hall and there is no web link.

In brief, the task was to generate ideas for the renovation of DHP's homeless shelter on South Van Ness in the Mission District of San Francisco. The facility's residents are in great need of an empowering and supportive sense of place, hope, and safety, and the aspiration was to facilitate this via better space
planning and organization, and the creation of more durable and usable furnishings and storage.

I was awarded based on having completed exhaustive spatial studies of the DHP’s existing storage and sleeping areas to produce a design for a bunk unit that would provide storage, privacy while changing clothes, and a sleeping area with individual lighting controls. The program director at DHP, Marlon Mendieta, and CCA staff commended my attention and sensitivity to details of the clients needs other designers don't often find exciting to design for.
