about me bio: Hello! I am a high energy interior design student seeking a full time position after graduation that can compliment my optimistic personality and strong work ethic. Ideally, Iâ€™d like the opportunity to work on all areas of the design process in a range of commercial projects. I plan to take the NCIDQ Fundamentals Exam in Fall of 2018, and will sit for the remaining two sections when I have completed the Work Experience requirement, in about 1-1.5 years. After settling down (10+ years), I plan to return to school for either a Sales, Business, or Marketing Masters Program.

assisted living community description:
White Pines Community is an assisted living facility in Scarborough, Maine. It was designed as a group project for a design competition posted by Senior News. White Pines Community was designed using the concept â€œcellâ€?. Although each detail and part go unnoticed individually, together, all parts combine to foster growth and safety within the cell walls. The layers of the cell build upon each other, work together, and create a cohesive habitat. Similarly, each room, detail, and finish work collectively to contribute to a healthy and collaborative environment for the residents.

co-working office space description:
This project was developed for an IIDA online competition and required a variety of deliverables, including formalized research and precident studies, and strict furniture and material guidelines. The space needed to be adaptable becuase it would be changing from a coworking studio during the day to a popup retail venue at night. Eighty percent of the furniture selections needed to be specified from OFS Brands.
Influenced by the history of the West End Marketplace in Dallas, Texas, the design for The Social Station will inspire and stimulate the occupants in the office just as the city energizes its residents and visitors. The concept word of â€œsparkâ€? inspired empowering pops of color along with unique spaces that encourage innovative thinking and new forms of expression. Occupants will feel electrified by fun and creative spaces, encouraging their ideas to be equally as so.
biomimicry as a design element design challenge:
Design a wall that incorporates biomimicry, a pattern, and a set of stairs. Wall dimensions were assigned but no other context was given. The wall was to meet all applicable International Building Codes and Accessibility Guidelines.
inspiration words: cylindrical, self sufficient sustainability
Inspired by biomimicry, the wall was to represent a cactus by using the cactusâ€™s identifying qualities in its design. Cylindrical figures, green colors, and infusion of water were the wallâ€™s driving concepts. The wall housed a hydroponics system, a symbiotic relationship between fish and greenery, in which the fish provide nutrients for the plants and the plants filter water for the fish. The system is extremely sustainable and almost fully self sufficient.
Features: Pattern incorporated through planter face and acrylic surface LED lights on bottom of planters provide essential light to plants Central tank houses the coy fish that contribute to the system Plant roots naturally filter water and soak up nutrients left behind by the fish Pipes in the wall transfer nutrients from the tank to the planters
retail space description: Fusion Clothing Company in the LN Gross building provides an energetic, all-inclusive shopping experience that will draw crowds into the building and re-energize the West River End neighborhood in downtown Kent. The project began as the creation of a new brand and developed into Fusion Clothing Company, a clothing store for millennials. Fusion uses the same cylindrical concepts as the biophilic wall. Through intersections of ceilings panels, clothing displays made of united cylinders, and a point of purchase desk constructed of multiple materials, Fusionâ€™s design elements come together to create an appealing and tactful atmosphere for both the customer and the employee. The rich orange, fuchsia, and sky finishes and curved, warm furnishings highlight the natural and historic tones and textures of the original building while also providing a new refreshing experience.

The business principles that made the first Kroger store successful in 1883 – service, selection and value – continue to guide the company’s operations today. (Credit: Kroger Co. website)
This project, actually a design competition, required a total re-branding of Kroger’s Pharmacy and in-house clinic. Sponsored by PAVE (Planning and Visual Arts) the project had very strict program requirements and creativity was equally as important as practicality.

kroger total health concept statement
Rich sky blue and grass green shades are used throughout the project to coincide with the projects concept of ground and sky. The new design for Kroger Total Health is comforting, universal, and accessible, similar to our natural and familiar world. The intentions of simplicity, familiarity, and accessibility are understood in every aspect of the project, and is met by the serenity of the space plan as well as the furniture and finishes. Traditional, rectilinear rooms fit together to create an easy and self made path of travel and lighting is used in a natural, predictable way to create a sense of comfort and control.

row house remodel site:
5336 Saint Clair Avenue Cleveland, OH 44103
Saint Clair Superior is one of the most diverse areas in Cleveland. The Rowhouse Reconstruction project required a very universal design, one in which any demographic could live comfortably.
The project began with a site visit where field measurements and site conditions were noted. Close attention was payed to surroundings so that the overall design could best represent the demographics of the area. Research was done on every aspect of the city including bus routes, city recreational facilities and restaurants.
custom fixture design project objective:
To design a Point of Purchase desk for the previous retail project using the same concept. The desk needed to meet all code requirements and ADA standards. A scaled model of the desk was also required.
Back (employee side)
The photos below show the scaled model. The back of the desk includes a hidden knee high shelf that can be used for general storage and for holding the computer tower. A portion of the top of the desk is constructed of a clear acrylic, allowing the employee to see what they are typing underneath without the possibility of clothes hitting and mistyping digits on the keyboard. The two pillar-like cylinders (left uncovered in model to enforce the concept) are stands for the computer monitor and the removable tops allow cords and cables from the computer monitor to run to the floor unseen. The customer side of the desk features an ADA compliant shelf.
