I am an AAS Interior Design graduate of Parsons the New School for Design (2010). I also received a double-degree from Binghamton University (2002) with a BS in Management Information Systems and a BA in Italian. I am currently employed by Con Edison as a Junior Designer in the department of Public Improvement/Engineering but am looking to work in the interior design realm. 

I have freelance experience in AutoCAD/3DSMax work and as a graphic designer for invitations, save-the-dates, and thank you notes.
