About 

Growing up in New York I have been exposed to many artforms and cultures. Design specifically spoke to me because I loved the mix of problem solving and artwork. It made me work hard and stay interested in the never ending facets of design. I went from someone who had no design sensibilities at the start of my schooling to a tutor who teaches students Adobe CC, Rhino, SketchUp, Vectorworks, and rendering. I also helped promote the use of AR at the Fashion Institute of Technology. I pride myself on my ability to adapt and learn on the fly different techniques to make my projects look better and I plan to move into creative direction to manage a team to bring a vision together.

As I move through my design career I plan to never stop learning and to never stagnate.

I am experienced in AutoCAD, Vectorworks, Rhino, Revit, SketchUp, Adobe CC, V-Ray, SU Podium, and Twinmotion.
