About 

Throughout my time as a student of architecture and design I have had the opportunity to work at both large and small scale interior design and architecture firms. I have seen that architecture defines how we see the world, framing views, and shaping our perception. Architecture has a profound ability to have a positive impact on the way people view the world, and I am excited to be a part of shaping those experiences.
