PROFILE I’m an architect who likes solving puzzles. I love everything that has to do with design and creating solutions, from brand identity to development branding, working with tiny homes to masterplanning communities, bespoke interiors to architecture. I believe that good design is founded on both a strong idea and a relevant narrative. I have over 11 years of experience working as a freelance and working in a studio and have been an architect, designer, stylist, event planner, decorator, graphic artist, art director, executive assistant, and a brand consultant. I love working with people, especially those with the same transdisciplinary passion that I have. Research, concept ideation, and branding are in my DNA.
HELLO! I’m Red.
