I am a recent graduate of Savannah College of Art and Design with a B.F.A. in interior design. Currently I am applying for work in New York City. As someone who has always been affected by the environment around me, interior design and architecture peaked my interest from a young age. After taking three years of architecture in high school I decided on interior design as I felt a stronger connection to it. The average person spends 90% of their time in an interior space, and it is my opinion that this statistic alone should provoke a deeper conversation and focus on how those spaces affect us on a daily basis. My designs tend to focus on concept in order to create comprehensive atmospheres that promote calmness and serenity while provoking deep thought through the manipulation of material and form.
