I currently live in Cocoa Beach, Florida, and I am a freelance interior designer.
As a child, I loved to draw floor plans. Certain elements of the built environment that would stick in my mind, and whenever I got home, I would design an entire floor plan based off of that element. When I graduated from high school, I went to Eastern Florida State to pursue business; however, after taking one economics class, I realized that it wasn’t for me. Shortly after, I decided that I needed to be a building arts student, due to what I enjoyed doing as a kid. I transferred to SCAD to pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts in interior design.
After graduation, I had the opportunity to become a freelance interior designer and have completed two projects. I am currently studying for the NCIDQ and eventually I would love to work with a hospitality design firm. Human-centric design is essential to creating memorable experiences. Beginning my designs with research and analysis allows me to address the design brief holistically and provide creative and empathetic solutions that change the way we live, work, and play. My education at SCAD has helped me understand the phases of the design process and develop skills to address problems with empathy.
