I am a recent graduate of the interior design program at The New School - Parsons School of Design looking to apply my passion and skills for design in the professional field. Throughout my life I have always felt a want to conceptualize and fabricate designs.

After graduating from Lafayette College in 2015 with a degree in Art History and Government and Law, I began working in Talent Acquisition/Human Resources for Ralph Lauren and subsequently JBCStyle (a New York City-based fashion recruitment firm). Interior Design had always been a passion of mine, and after viewing design portfolios on a daily basis at work, I was inspired to apply for the interiors program at Parsons.

I hope to design spaces that elevate, motivate, and inspire those who occupy them in ways never experienced before.
