I am an interior designer with experience in residential and healthcare design. I would like to expand my knowledge base in said areas, as well as branch out into some new areas of design. I am qualified in all the obligatory design skills: space planning, designing, drafting, drawing up CDs, preparation of presentations, hand sketching, rendering, developing finish palettes, selection/specification of FF&E, etc. I am organized, a multi-tasker, detail oriented, have excellent time-management skills and communication skills.
