Bicyclist, recycler, animal-lover, sewer, Deutsch sprechen, overall art & design enthusiast.

In May 2014, I finished my Bachelor of Interior Design from Louisiana State University, College of Art + Design.

Within interior design I have developed a passion for component and furniture design.  My interest is inspired by sculpture, functional art.  Combining the clean edged practicality of design with the enigmatic edge of artistry I believe makes for the most intriguing forms.  I don't think form has to always follow function.  I believe they can be harmonious.  

I enjoy writing concept statements, and finding purpose in the small, mundane everyday aspects of life.  I also enjoy working with my hands, creating anything that I can.  Because if we are not creating, what are we striving for?
