About

As an NCIDQ certified designer and WELL AP , I bring 15+ years of experience in both commercial and residential design to your project! I believe your interior space should be a showcase for your personality or brand, while always incorporating design elements and materials which promote health and well being for all occupants.

I have extensive experience in all areas of the design process, including creating full detailed construction document sets for permit in AutoCAD as well as 3D renderings using SketchUp.
