About 

I am a designer with a Bachelor of Architecture degree, and am currently working toward my architecture license. 

In my 5 years at California College of the Arts, I designed several projects including hotels, museums, sports stadiums, and residences. Throughout these projects I refined my skills in developing concepts, space planning, urban mapping, public presentation, model building, and graphic communication.

Over the last 4 years, I have worked on 5 built projects from design concept through construction in which my roles included drafter, project manager, interior designer, and stager. I am currently working on several new residential projects, and although my experience lies mostly in this area, I am also involved in a few commercial restaurant projects as a drafter and interior designer. 

My interests include environmental design, tiny homes, furniture design, typography, and travel.
