I am a Masters student at Harrington College of Design and would be graduating in the summer
semester of 2013. I have an outstanding academic experience at Harrington and I am looking forward to utilizing my skills in the interior design field. At this point my passion for interior design has led me to a career change and subsequently the pursuing of an education at Harrington. I have a strong passion for hospitality, residential, and sustainable design projects that I have focused my thesis research project on understanding the process of designing an eco-resort. The project focuses on using the principles of eco-tourism; that the location, culture and practices of the environment in which the resort is placed are heavily influencing the design. My artistic creativity and my disciplined traits as a student have enabled me to be very successful at school so far and I feel prepared to enter the working world of interior design.
