I recently graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University's CIDA-accredited Interior Design program with an MFA in Interior Environments. I strongly believe that an understanding of traditional techniques and the basic building blocks of design has contributed to my success with modern technologies like AutoCAD, the Adobe Creative Suite, and Revit.

With experience in hospitality and residential design, I am looking for opportunities to work in a dynamic studio environment and develop innovative and functional solutions for clients' unique needs. As a designer, I aspire to motivate, elevate, and inspire clients to live and work simply, happily, and beautifully.
