Who am I as a designer? I am a conscious interior designer. I wish to make it my aim to instill in people a desire to not only acknowledge the experience, process, and utility in design but also the importance of sustainability. Design is about having a holistic vision for a changed built environment that is sustainable while integrating and promoting the health, safety,and welfare of the user. With each project, I have the opportunity to immerse myself into research and information gathering, to apply that knowledge and begin to explore the design possibilities to which my designs will affect the public. The best part is...

still learning.� -Michelangelo
