About 

As a recent graduate of the UCLA Architecture and Interior Design certificate program, I’ve honed my passion for conceptualizing, communicating, and fully executing design plans in collaboration with both clientele and coworkers.

While at UCLA, I simultaneously worked as a Junior Designer at Sarah Shetter Design, where I developed a strong ability to build and maintain relationships, oversee fabrication and installation, and meet project deadlines. I take great pride in my professionalism as it relates to these less glamorous aspects of the job; aspects that I’ve found to be just as instrumental to a project’s success as the creative component.

My design abilities are complemented by my wide-ranging technical skills, including:

▪  Concept Development

▪  Design Communication

▪  Space Planning

▪  Procurement/Sourcing

▪  Client/Vendor Relations

▪  Logistics

▪  Install Coordination

▪  Vendor Coordination

▪  Photo Styling

I believe that the power of collaboration takes design beyond aesthetic beauty and towards an outcome that embodies meaning and authenticity, which is what motivates and inspires me throughout my work.

I am confident that my knowledge base, experience, and commitment to success would provide invaluable contributions to the growth of your design studio. Should you have any questions, I can be best contacted at (818) 809-7074. I look forward to speaking with you to discuss your needs and my qualifications in greater detail.
