Interior Design

I run a design firm that offers services in architectural and structural engineering, and interior design. I’ve also developed projects involving small resort hotels and residential condominiums.

Many newcomers to the design field try too hard to create something that is visually stunning. I tell them to try to create an end product that is both aesthetically pleasing and functionally efficient.

As a student at Moore, I interned at an architectural firm.  Working in a design office for the first time had a big impact on me. It gave me the first glimpse of what having your own design firm would be like. The fact that I have been able to make a lifelong career out of being a designer speaks a lot for the education I received at Moore.
