"Yesterday is history, tomorrow's a mystery, today is a gift, that's why they call it the present."


I recently graduated from the Interior Architecture program in the School of Architecture and Allied Arts at the University of Oregon. I love design and how creating a space or an object can leave lasting impressions on people.
I love spaces that require amplified expression and detail through both structures, furniture design, and smaller units of typography and artwork.

I am originally from San Diego, but had my fair dosage of real weather in Eugene, and surprisingly loved it! I am open to many locations for work, as experiencing new cities and cultures is a passion of mine.

I value a healthy lifestyle, and thus have a knack for exploring and being active wherever I am.

I am always searching for new inspirations, methods and technologies for all sorts of projects as well as any opportunities to gain experience and learn further in the design field.
