About 

Hello! 

I am a recent graduate of Cal Poly SLO's Architecture program and I have spent the past 6 months working in the Art Department design offices for 2 feature films. I am looking to move away from working in film and move back toward a career in architecture and/or interior design. I have a huge love for building physical models and and an interest in furniture design.
