I have been practicing interior design for the last six years and have had the opportunity to design for retail, exhibition, hospitality and branding projects alike. I am well versed in concept design, design development, project management and presentation.

My road to Interior Design started with an education in Industrial Design, which I believe have given me an advantage in my ability to create custom fixtures which best compliment each space to create a cohesive environment. It also drives my growing obsession with materiality which has given me a new lens on seeing the world through colors and textures.

My current goal is to focus on restaurant and hospitality design - designing spaces for people to linger and remember. I am looking to gaining more experience in project management where I have shown strength in the past.
