New Rochelle, NY, US



With an architectural background, I recently completed my Masters Degree at Rhode Island School of Design where I studied interior architecture with a concentration on adaptive reuse.  Prior to attending RISD I received my Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the Catholic University of America.  During my time at CUA, my team and I received the second place award for a design competition studio.


I have always been interested in the way design can transform spaces and inform experiences.  I have a fascination with proportions, geometries, materials, textures, and colors and how they are employed in space.  I also have vested interest in detailed simplicity.
