What is a typical day like?
“A typical day can be anything from prepping a presentation and meeting with a client to review their project, meeting with our textile design team to finalize colorways and pattern layouts, or simply spending the day behind the computer designing our latest marketing mailers, or drafting elevations for a project.”

What are your short-term/long-term career goals?
“I'd like to delve more into graphic design and branding as that has become a very strong passion for me. I'd like to enroll in a few more courses to get my feet wet in that arena, and long term I'd definitely like to own my own multi-discipline design firm. I don't like limiting myself to the term "interior designer" as I feel my interests lie throughout the design spectrum: product design, graphic design, interior design… you name it.”
