New York, NY, US



I am a designer who values thoughtful and elegant solutions. Most of my design experience comes from working at the architectural scale, but I equally enjoy projects ranging from urban design to product and web design. I prioritize user experience when making design decisions and I would describe my work as sensitive (in the sense that I pay close attention to how the space would feel, sound, or look from multiple vantages.) I am a proactive worker and I enjoy learning new things.


I am looking for a position where I can contribute my skills, knowledge, and optimism.
