About 

I recently graduated with a Master's Degree from Florida State University in the Department of Interior Architecture and Design (CIDA Accredited). My primary purpose as an interior designer is to continually listen, learn and implement functional, meaningful design. I believe that a designer’s greatest asset is his or her willingness to keep exploring new ideas. 

Influenced by my background in Art History, I pay special attention to fine and decorative arts, as well as travel and influences from various cultures. I plan to pursue NCIDQ certification.

I am excited to see what opportunities lie ahead for me in the evolving field of design.

Kravet Student Design Competition Finalist, Award

Kravet sponsored a residential design competition in which 47 students submitted design boards and only 10 finalists were selected to have their designs viewed by the judges. Each student designed a 6,000-foot penthouse suite to be built in New York City. Their entries were judged by magazine editors, professional designers and architects, and the Principal at Kravet, Inc.

FSU: Department of Interior Architecture and Design Annual Charette Finalist, Honorable Mention

Students were to create conceptual design iterations for the Florida State University MagLab main lobby and public visitor areas, highlighting the high-tech and innovative research conducted there.

Students were grouped off into 26 teams of 5 members, with an intentional mix of sophomores, juniors, seniors and graduate students. This allowed the older students to mentor the younger ones, and encouraged them to work with different skill sets.
