About 

I was born in London, grew up in Montreal, went to University in rural Vermont, and have also lived in Boston, coastal Maine, and Amsterdam. The experience of living in these different places sparked my love of discovering new spaces around the world, both natural and manmade. A recent graduate of Parsons' Interior Design program, I currently live and work in New York City - a place that constantly provides unexpected surprises and endless inspiration.

As a designer, I am focused on designing efficient spaces for a user’s experience, finding innovative applications for materials, and keen attention to detailing. I enjoy experimenting with scale, texture, rhythm and light, and clearly representing these ideas with computer modeling, sketching, physical models, and hand rendering. I am motivated to create unique spaces with interesting narratives that set a lasting impression.
