 The built environment captured my intrigue from an early age. Being able to develop a project and see it come to fruition is something I find truly fulfilling. I have always been passionate about the field of design, whether it be in Architecture or Interiors, from a young age I had an awareness of the influence of the environment on an individual. My passion for the ability to change such environments, and thus, change people, is when my studies began.

I achieved my Bachelors of Fine Arts Degree in Interior Design in 2009 from the Design Institute of San Diego in California, a CIDA (Council for Interior Design Accreditation) accredited institution. In June of 2013 I received my Masters Degree in Architecture from the NewSchool of Architecture + Design, a NAAB accredited Institution.

 My passion is for creating beautiful environments with responsible research, sustainable consciousness and all aspects of the design problem addressed and carefully analyzed to produce the best possible solution. My practice in Architecture has introduced an entirely new application of skill-sets which have advanced my work greatly.

 I currently work for an award-winning firm specializing in Educational and Civic work.
