Los Angeles, CA, US



I am a LA/OC based designer with a broad background in design including space planning, visual merchandising, and sales. I am a self-starter with strong leadership, communication, and presentation skills. I enjoy working as part of a team, but have been very successful working on my own. My main goal is to create spaces that enrich the lives of the client and in turn enrich my life.
