About 

I wish to create something not because it looks beautiful but because it has meaning and deep layers of research behind and that is what I try to do in all of my designs. I strive to use a multifaceted approach to my projects, by using different methods, styles and forms to create environments that are uniquely my own. Through my design, I aspire to make aesthetically pleasing interior spaces to evoke feelings and emotions in me and the viewer.

Education 

Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, NY, US, Bachelors, Interior Design

I have explored the properties of colors and materials while designing along with lighting to enhance the design. I have designed small scale conceptual projects with a focus on sustainable and social features inherent to the respective sites. I have also worked in teams on interior projects and I have learned about leadership, management, and communication. Last year, I was studying abroad as an Interior Architecture student in Copenhagen, Denmark. This experience has expanded my knowledge about classical and contemporary precedents in Architecture and Interior Design. I have learned a lot about the different design concepts and strategies used by architects as I travelled all over Europe. I believe that this experience has given me a competitive edge in this globalized world.
