Objects and spaces are not just instruments for our use, but entities that are effectively linked to us. Like trees in a garden, we cannot converse with them but we can interact in infinitely various ways.

Junior Designer
June 2017 - Present

I currently work on as a Junior Interior Designer on high end residential projects. When I am not assisting principal designers I am responsible for developing custom furniture and lighting to complete the spaces. 


Furniture and Lighting Designer
June 2015 - February 2017

I was one of two furniture and lighting designers at the hospitality design firm, AvroKO. My primary responsibility was the design of custom works — this first incorporates sketches, models, and renders and concluded with construction drawings for manufacturers. On a day-to-day basis I worked in combination with interior designers for inspiration and manufacturers for execution.
