Interior Design

At Daroff Design, I’ve worked on national and international hotels, restaurants and corporate environments. I’m very fortunate – I get to work on projects that push the imagination with people who have tremendous talent and experience. I’m constantly learning and it’s just the beginning!

I came to Moore because I was serious about focusing on my education. By the time I knew I wanted to study interior design I was a few years older than the average college student. I had already been to a large university and I knew it wasn’t for me. As soon as I walked into Moore I knew I could focus and push myself creatively without fearing judgment. Being a small school with challenging programs and a reputation for excellence in the visual arts, I knew Moore was a place that would encourage me to be my best.
As a student at Moore I was fortunate enough to intern for one of my professors at Abby Schwarz Associates. I had the opportunity to see the many phases of architecture and design projects from conceptual thinking to post-construction follow up. These experiences not only made me extremely marketable when I was looking for employment, they also allowed for a smoother transition from student to professional once I landed a job.
