a lil' about me
It all started when...
I began drawing floor plans during recess and designing my childhood room became an exciting challenge. I developed an eye for the designs of rooms whenever a new space presented itself - the window treatments that guide the light through, the flooring patterns that glide under my feet, and how a space is composed to accommodate the user. I’d see how I could make it even better.
I am a passionate entrepreneur that aims to create spaces that move people. I’m currently studying interior design at The College for Creative Studies in my hometown of Detroit, MI. Which has challenged my vision as well as established an understanding for digital software, space planning, and conceptual integrity. I aim for renderings to showcase my vision on an array of interiors.
I challenged myself this past summer to step outside my comfort zone, and packed my bags up to head to the West Coast for an internship at an interior design firm in Laguna Beach, CA. I enjoyed helping to create luxurious home environments in the breezy sunshine state. My professional background before that consists of work in educational commercial design at University of Michigan, as well as luxury residential in Birmingham, MI. My goal is to work in the hospitality sector of interior design — to create spaces that affect multiple people and help establish a place of comfort and belonging.
