I am an interior designer with a multidisciplinary background in interior, industrial, and lighting design background. I focus on developing unique design approaches that infuse layers of structure, objects, materials, and lighting to create truly inspiring and practical hospitality spaces. My design philosophy is rooted in creativity, organization, user experience, and meticulous attention to detail, which ensures longevity and timeless appeal.

Right now, I'm actively seeking a junior interior designer position where I can continue to grow and refine my skills while contributing to the creation of some truly remarkable projects.
