Los Angeles, CA, US



I am a creative, ambitious person who aims to achieve leadership positions within my career. I currently work at voila! gallery and studio as a Visual Designer while pursuing my Masters of Interior Architecture at UCLA Extension in the evenings.


I view design as a means for creating emotional relationships. Therefore, when designing, I aim to incorporate this motto in everything, focusing on how one may interact and connect with a design. I am currently seeking a position that will allow me to do this while working with a strong creative team.
