About 

I am a New York / New Jersey based designer with a background in architecture and have a passion for unique, creative and sustainable designs. Being that I had the opportunity to contribute to FEMA research at my most recent job, my interest in sustainable design has peaked even more in the past year. My previous work experience has also showed me that great design is achieved in a collaborative environment where the group gets to share their thoughts and ideas openly with one another. Some of my other interests include pencil drawing, graphic design and photography but above all, I am eager to use the skills I have gained over the years to find new and innovative ways to improve the human experience thorough design.
