About 

My formative education experience was initially concentrated in Art and Environmental Design at Otis College of Art and Design prior to completing my masters program at the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc). By developing a strong foundation in multiple areas during my education, specifically crafting and furniture building, physical drawings, digital design, I was able to prepare myself for my professional experiences at several diverse architecture and design-build firms.  I have taken on multiple functioning roles on a wide-range of projects from local residential and commercial projects to large scale international projects.  My education and professional background eventually led me to be able to take on projects where I was fully in charge of the process from conception to construction.  As a design lead and project manager,  I took on client and vendor acquisition and management, had full creative control of the design process, and managed construction from start to finish.
