Los Angeles, CA, US



I am an interior designer with ambition, a lover of the arts and photography, and always looking for a challenge. I just recently decided to pack up my car, drive across 8 states, and I now reside in the beautiful energetic city of Los Angeles. I'm excited to grow as both a designer and photographer in a new city where I am inspired by everything that surrounds me!
