Katy, TX, US




Eager to learn and expand my knowledge of new methods and technologies.

My various explorations led me to believe that interdisciplinary study is essential to develop technical, yet aesthetic designs.

I have become a quick and versatile learner through my many experiences with unfamiliar tasks and looming deadlines!

I enjoy engaging and communicating with clients, consultants, and team members to build trusting relationships.
