About 

I am a recent RISD graduate with a BFA in Interior Architecture and a concentration in Nature, Culture and Sustainable Studies (NCSS). My work and studies are focused on biomimicry with attention to form and function. I take a lot of inspiration from nature and use it as a device to model from. All of my work begins with a simple nature object and then flourishes into its final design. If you have any questions feel free to email me. Thank you for visiting.
