Mineola, NY, US



I am a dedicated architecture student and passionate designer. I believe architecture, research, interior design, and design thinking work together in order to design spaces and objects that aren’t just functional, but beautiful. While my passion is not only focused on one discipline, I believe creative design is a result of collaborative work with innovative, sensitive and passionate professionals to come up with unique solutions to transform spaces.
