About 

I’m now working at Jeffery Beers International as Interior Designer.  I work mainly on hospitality projects with a bit of retail projects.  I worked from concept development to FF&E.  I love working on hospitality projects because we get to work on a lot of custom pieces to help achieve the concept.  Being able to design from the big architectural gesture to detail and also furniture is really fulfilling for me.

I graduated from Pratt Institute’s Department of Interior Design. I worked at an Interior Design firm for a year before going to Pratt, and I interned at TPG Architecture and Object Agency during my time at Pratt.  This work includes retail, corporate and residential projects.  I am competent in all the software skills needed as well as conceptual design, I also learned a lot on the construction side during work.  For me construction is extremely important for a project.

My time at Pratt allows me to really work on the concept, I really enjoy it.  But I enjoy working even more because there are so many problems to be solved and so many detail to take care of, learning how to execute a design is also really interesting to me.
