New York, NY, US



I am a recent graduate of the Master’s Interior Design program at Harrington College of Design. I am a creative, hard-working individual with a genuine love for the fields of Interior Design and Graphic Design. I began the Master’s program at Harrington in the fall of 2010. Since that time I have acquired strong skills
in 2D and 3D AutoCAD, 3D Studio Max, and the Adobe Suite. Since graduating at the end of August, I
have been continuting my interior design internship at Schumacher, as well as doing freelance graphic
design work. My current graphic design work is mainly logo and branding for up and coming fashion
designers in Chicago. I pride myself on my organizational skills, focus and drive. I have a very eclectic work history which proves that I am truly a chameleon that can adapt to any work enviornment.
