North Hollywood, CA, US



I am a student member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) Raised in Southern California, I obtain my Bachelors Degree in Family and Consumer Science with a focus in Interior Architectural Design in 2008.

I am well versed in urban living, modern architecture, art and soft modern design. Freelancing right after college, I found myself intrigued with color and soft modern architecture. 

Through traveling and hands on experience, I enhanced the beauty of Architectural Design and applied it to a very unique style to what is now my own perspective view of Interior Design.
