I am an architectural designer currently working at Space Exploration Design in Brooklyn, New York. In May 2016, I received a 5-year Professional Bachelor Degree in Architecture as well as a Bachelor's Degree in Interior Architecture from Auburn University. 

I have enjoyed working in the interior architecture field, particularly within the specific constraints that New York projects provide. During my time as a designer I have worked on interior renovations of apartments and townhomes in Brooklyn and Manhattan as well as several small commercial spaces.
