Interior Design & Architecture
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” - Maya Angelou
About Me I found a passion for design at an early age when I started drawing floor plans for fun. As I have learned more about the design world, I have been able to grow my passion for interior design and architecture into a career. I love that design gives me an opportunity to create a space that has a positive impact on its users. I truly believe that design can save lives, and not just that but improve lives, creating environments that make people thrive. We are all a product of our environment, and I want to design to shape people into world-changers. Strong design comes from community. The more I can emphasize with a user, the better I can serve them. Design is unique in that it touches so many facets of community - not just community amoung designers and users or users and the public, but local and global community. This is why sustainability and universal design are so vital: they speak to communities larger than the immediate people affected. Every design effects the future and world around it. I am strong believer in spatial justice. I recognize the need for good design among the less fortunate, and I think it is every designerâ€™s ability to contribute to rectifying that. Humility and patience are vital skills for any designer hoping to create positive change. Design has powerful impact and should be used to protect the health, safety, and welfare of all peoples.
