I currently work as an interior designer with NEXT Architecture in Pittsburgh, Pa. I have worked for NEXT since my junior year of college starting as an intern and taking on a full-time position after graduating from Philadelphia University with a Bachelors Degree in Interior Design. I chose the program at Philadelphia University because it is ranked among the top 10 in the country by Design Intelligence. The program is also ranked fourth in the U.S. for collegiate programs deemed strongest in the following skill areas: Computer Applications and Cross-Disciplinary Teamwork. I have been fortunate to have been taught not only the mechanics of design but also the human experience and how it relates to the built environment. Additionally, sketching classes at Phila U gave me an appreciation of dimension, perspective, and the beauty found in nature and simple objects. It has been instilled in me to find inspiration within my surroundings and apply them outside the box. My current skill set includes InDesign, Autocad, Photoshop, Revit, SketchUp, drafting, and hand rendering.
Lacrosse has also been a big part of my life from middle school to high school and in to college. I have been a starting player for Philadelphia University since my freshman year and have won awards for Rookie of the Year and Unsung Hero in addition to helping drive my team to championships in 2014 and 2016. In 2016 I was awarded Defensive Player of the Year in my conference and was chosen to be Captain of my team for 2017.
