I am a designer with 14 years experience with the design and preparation of architectural construction documents for Hospitality, Corporate, Commercial and Residential projects.  I also love interior design and have completed a professional development program in Interior Design.

I love learning about other cultures, people and places. Some of my most recent trips have included California, Paris, France, Italy (Rome, Florence, Assisi, Pisa, Bologna and Venice), London and New York City.

I happen to have a hearing impairment but that in no way stops me from my work, reaching my goals and doing things I enjoy the most.
