Philadelphia, PA, US



I am a candidate for a MS in Interior Architecture and Design at Drexel University (May 2013). I have a creative background with a Fine Art degree from University of Delaware as well as several years of experience working for the marketing side of a textile design company.


Most recently I have begun exploring the future of design and how this will be translated into the interior environment. I am dedicated to design that is holistic and benefits us on not only a visual level, but a full sensory and emotional level as well.
