Harriet Lapidus

New York, NY, US



I hold a BFA in Interior Design from Pratt Institute. I recently relocated to New York and hope to secure a design position in the area.

I have a background in AutoCAD drafting, as well as 2D rendering (Adobe Creative
Suite) and 3D rendering (SketchUp). I have experience drawing construction documents
for various cabinetry manufacturing lines, such as Ultracraft and Plain & Fancy. Always
eager and excited to learn and to take on new tasks, I am committed to detail and
appreciate a fast paced environment. I enjoy taking part in any project and assisting
others on my team.
