I am a highly motivated, creative thinker who is extremely dependable, punctual and a positive person. I also have strong organizational skills, a professional attitude, pay extreme attention to detail and take ownership and pride in everything I do. I believe with my diverse background, personal drive to succeed and the love and passion I have for design, I would make a perfect addition to your team. I have been involved in the hospitality, commercial, retail, and high-end residential design industry for over 15 years. I have worked across the United States at several major firms, and have been at a senior level either as project manager, senior designer, or director of design for over 10 years. I have extensive experience in all aspects of the architectural/design/construction industry.  I aspire to create interactive spaces that cause people to connect to the world, community, and family while being conscious of the impact our living spaces have on our individual wellness and relationships and the environment. It is important to mentor and to work together as a team to collaborate on projects so the client receives the best possible overall design.

My other passions are art, travel, and committing my time to humanitarian work.  I have started the HerAthena Project this year, that allows designers to showcase their designs to the world while helping people across the globe to use their talents and resources to produce items that are exported to other countries allowing income to these impoverished communities for long term housing, food, and medical care.
