I’m a designer with a broad range of experiences - both professional experience and life experience that has strongly influenced who I am as a designer and person. I have lived in multiple countries and believe that I have taken my travel experiences as a way to learn how people interact with the space around them and what we as designers can do to improve day to day life. 

I have worked in three architecture firms with a fairly different range of project types, and recently attended the Dublin Institute of Design to improve my skill set and become more proficient in BIM modelling. 

I would like to apply myself in a company with long term growth opportunities and a strong studio culture. I am always eager to learn new skills and find opportunities to foster my relationships with my peers and mentors in a collaborative and educational environment.
