New York, NY, US



I am a graduate of the Academy of Art University's School of Interior Architecture & Design. In my work, I believe in balancing contrasting elements (i.e. masculine vs. feminine, traditional vs. contemporary, and organic vs. inorganic) to create spaces which are functional and universally appealing.  Good design is thoughtful and thorough. It should elicit emotion and create an experience. It's all in the details!
