I landed my first professional job at the UCSB Architecture and Design Collection (ADC) merely by happenstance – I was a history major with experience in selling footwear. With my first task being to delicately archive the works of George Washington Smith, my eyes were opened to the beauty of architecture. While I grew up following my dad around on job sites, I never considered anything of the industry, let alone classify it as art. However, the ADC taught me thoughtful form (R.M. Schindler), gender empowerment (L.M. Riggs), civic refinement (Ed Killingsworth) and unmistaken glamour (Paul Williams). Halfway through my college career, I changed my major to Architectural History and have never looked back.
Upon graduation, I accepted a design assistant position at a boutique interior design firm, Philippa Radon Design, while concurrently taking classes within the UCLA Extension Arch-ID program. While I draw my inspiration from architecture and architects alike, I wanted my focus to be on the interior organization of space. In 2014, I acquired a position as a project coordinator with a high end residential firm, Patrick Ediger Interior Design. I have successfully completed my interior design certificate with the Arch-ID program and I am currently pursuing my Masters in Interior Architecture at Cal Poly Pomona.
I live in Hollywood, CA with my little dog, Penny Lane, and my best friend, Cory Ruth. When I am not at work, studying or designing, I find joy in yoga, hiking, reading and a good cup of coffee while exploring Los Angeles.
