Dallas, TX, US



I am a Junior Interior Designer with experience in hospitality, tenant improvement and site survey projects.  Recent experience in the hospitality lighting industry has provided me with a different perspective into contract standards.  I am currently working to advance my knowledge of the industry by studying for the upcoming NCIDQ exam and will be following that up by taking a course in Revit to expand my computer skills.

I am looking for a company that I can grow with that will push me to experience a wide variety of projects and skill sets.
