I am a recent graduate of the New York School of Interior Design Master's program and am looking forward to getting back into the professional world.

I previously studied architecture at the University of Michigan and then worked at an architectural firm in Michigan where I discovered my true passion was in interior design.  I have worked on a range of project types in the educational arena as well as a few hospitality projects.
