About 

Hi! I'm Kelsey Venditozzi, a 26 year old Southern California native living in New York City. I am currently enrolled in my second semester of the Basic Interior Design program at the New York School of Interior Design. With primarily evening classes, I am pursuing part time internship or job positions for the Spring 2018 semester, with a start date as early as 1/22/18.

I am an innately artistic individual, bringing creativity to everything I do - from handmade birthday cards, studying fine art courses, leading the interior designing for my college sorority recruitment, to handling the decorating for gatherings and birthday parties for family and friends. I now aspire to take my passion to the next step, by learning the history of design to further support my artistic and stylistic decisions. I am fascinated by the durability and sustainability of design, and aim to master the technical and aesthetic principles of the interior design field.
