New York, NY, US



Thus far, I have worked at a high-end, primarily residential interior design firm where I gained a strong background designing unique, modern residential and commercial spaces. As an interior designer in this firm, I became well versed with the subjects of project management, drafting, construction, plumbing, electrical, fixtures and design. I have excellent experience in hiring, scheduling and supervising subcontractors.

During my time there, I made numerous contributions. From re-designing the company website to marketing us online and within the community, I was a key player in many departments throughout the firm. I currently work as a graphic designer & marketing coordinator for a residential housing development company where I have gained knowledge in the visual marketing field.  

My advanced skill set includes expert knowledge in programs such as AutoCAD 2012, Adobe Photoshop, Indesign, Illustrator and Dreamweaver, as well as basic skills in Revit, 3-D Studio Max, Sketchup and Adobe flash.  I am also knowledgeable in sustainable design, ADA code compliance, FF & E specifications and both, free-hand and 3-D rendering.
