I have over three years of design experience in the hospitality industry. I have had the opportunity to work on an array of projects from luxury hotels to budget conscious renovations to high end residential properties.

I am well versed in all phases of design. Some of my strengths include presentation design of material boards and digital format, FF&E and finish selection and documentation, specification writing, budgeting, project management, and construction documentation.

I am in search of an intermediate position at a design firm that will both challenge me and aid in my growth as a designer.
