Philadelphia, PA, US



While working as an assistant boutique manager, I decided that I should follow my passion for creating.  I enrolled in UNLV’s Interior Architecture and Design program.  It was there that I finally felt as though I had found the path I was supposed to travel.  I excelled in studio and began working in the A+D industry in 2009.  My ambition has led to my most recent position at TAL Studio in Las Vegas, working on projects such as Kimpton Hotel Monaco in Philadelphia, PA, Andrea’s restaurant in Wynn Encore in Las Vegas, NV, and Ameristar Casino and Resort in Lake Charles, LA.  I am currently seeking employment in the Philadelphia area.  Feel free to contact me with any questions.  Thank you!
