My love of design and architecture began when I was fairly young. I found myself fascinated by buildings and how they were constructed and then soon realized I was consistently drawn to design, visual arts, and the built environment. As a highly visual person, if something felt out of order in my world, I immediately wanted to change it and create a feeling of balance and beauty. Read more>>\
