Los Angeles, CA, US



Born and raised in the Los Angeles area, I graduated from the University of Southern California with a Bachelor's Degree in Architecture in May of 2013. After graduation, I moved to Paris to work in the architecture department for Louis Vuitton, working on designs for their stores throughout northern Asia and currently, I am working in their store planning department in San Francisco. Previously, I have worked for Anthropologie as a visual display and merchandising intern and have done a workshop with EMBT while I studied abroad in Barcelona. All of these experiences combined with my education at USC have equipped me with the skills to pursue a career in architecture and interior design. I am especially interested in retail design and work that focuses on the user experience.
