About 

My passion for design began with the computer game The Sims. I quickly realized I spent more effort designing the spaces for the characters to live in than the livelihoods of said characters. Fast forward fifteen years and I am enthralled by the knowledge that the spaces you design for ‘the characters’ DO in fact improve their livelihoods. This became my key concept throughout my school projects; what can the space do for the user?  

I take great interest in the design of visually compelling spaces but equally so in the tremendous impact design plays in immersing one into part of a story.I strive to design beautiful spaces with a strong emphasis on sustainability. It is my goal to become a team member to an architecture, interior design or real estate development company from which I can continually learn and contribute too. I believe my hardworking, team oriented, organized and determined characteristics will make me a great addition to any team.
