My experience and coursework to date have laid a solid foundation in fine arts, digital art/design, and architecture. I am proficient in AutoCAD, Adobe Creative Suite, SketchUp, and Microsoft Office. My passion for art, architecture, and design drives me in everything I do.

Through my course studies and work experience, I have developed a strong devotion to not only designing beautiful and functional interiors, but spaces that are sustainable, beautiful, and purposeful. As designers, we have a social responsibility to build for a better future; creating spaces that positively impact the environment and building a better world for future generations. This desire to design spaces that have a positive impact on the environment, creating a better world for future generations led me to become a LEED Green Associate.
