I am looking to pursue a career in the interior design and architecture field with a focus on retail, hospitality, and sustainability.

My passion for travel recently led me to Ghana during summer 2023 with a group of fellow architecture students. We designed a teacher's cottage in Abrem Esiam, Cape Coast, Ghana and erected the structure in under 4 weeks with the help of some incredible local masons and carpenters.

I currently work as a Retail and Event Design Specialist for Schneider Saddlery. This position has provided extensive experience with retail design, graphic design, client relationship development, project management, and proficiency in the Adobe Creative suite, AutoCAD, and Revit.
