I received a professional Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Tennessee College of Architecture and Design with extracurricular studies in Interior Design, Graphic Design, and Photography. While at the University of Architecture, I explored the Urban-planning and Architecture of Italy during a three week foreign studies program.
My work experience started with a three month internship before moving to Shanghai, China where I worked as both an architect and interior designer for two years. This international experience adds a lot to both my design aesthetic and my ability to adapt to different working environments. While in China, I elevated my career to the point of project manager dealing with client relations, site management, and total design solutions from schematic design to construction documents.
