About 

My name is Sean Barnfather and I am currently working as a freelance interior designer. In 2018 I graduated Summa Cum Laude from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona’s Master of Interior Architecture program. During my time in the program I completed an internship at an Interior Design firm, worked at a tile and stone showroom, and worked as a freelance Interior Designer for six different interior designers. While freelancing, I worked directly with the principal designers to complete design and construction drawings. I was also tasked with coordinating, preparing, and completing presentation documents to be shown to clients.
