How did you first learn about architecture and when did you decide that built environment profession was an area of interest for you?

Growing up I was interested in the arts. I took all types of arts/mixed media classes throughout school. It wasn't until I enrolled in my first interiors studio during college that I was able to truly realize my passion for interior architecture.

What do you do?

I work as a senior project manager at GTM Architects. I lead all types of commercial interior projects from start to completion.

What excites you in the work you do?

That I'm always learning. Whether it be a new type of project I've never done before or a challenge during construction; there is always something new to take away from each project.

Who or what inspires you professionally?

There isn't just one thing. The biggest would be the world around me. Creating spaces for the people actually using them.

 

What is your proudest professional accomplishment or achievement?

Handling a project from start to finish by myself. Being able to see the completed end product with happy clients was very fulfilling.
