Employment 

Jane Henderson Interior Design, Ann Arbor, MI, Interior Designer

At Jane Henderson Interior Design, I worked as the main designer in tandem with the head designer, Jane. She trusted me to fabricate quick design solutions, pick FF&E specifications, as well as create plans, drawings, and client presentations. I was able to be involved in every step of the design process, from initial concept planning to installations on the same project. Since it was only the two of us, we were constantly working on different types of projects simultaneously, including retail and residential. Jane allowed me to have a large amount of design freedom and trusted my design insight, including having authority over an 18 year old's bedroom from start to finish. The two of us worked very closely, and I was able to become familiar with many important design requirements, such as safety and ADA regulations.

Related Companies, New York, NY, Urban Design Intern

As a design intern at Related Companies, I was exposed to every type of scale of architecture. I was part of iterative meetings for the design of a 9.5 million square-foot masterplan and in the same day would be discussing the pillow choices in the Hudson Yards Equinox Hotel or walking through the Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle, deciding on new signage for the retail shops. I was present at many site visits, including the final design decisions on the Hudson Yards project. Not only was I involved in the design of these differing scales of architecture, but I also helped manage the relationships between world-renown architecture firms, promoting a more positive, collaborative way of working.
