If you had to describe yourself in three words, they would be...: Passionate, caring, and goofy
Who is a character from a TV show or a book that you’ve always resonated with?: Mindy Lahiri from The Mindy Project. I like to think I am as funny as she is.
If you won a lottery ticket for a million dollars, what would you do with it?: First, the obvious student loan payoff and then I would travel around the world. This girl has never been out of the country.
If you could trade lives with one person for an entire day who would it be and why?: Despite the recent election.. I would say the President of the United States. I’m curious to know what is truly happening in the world despite the media.
You've been given access to a time machine, where and when would you travel to?: Definitely the 1960’s to any music venue during that time.
What is your most bizarre talent?: I can read insanely fast. Just two weeks ago, I finished a 350 page book on an hour flight.
Lesson learned that has benefited you most in your career: Always, always, always ask questions. You learn a lot more that way.
Why did you choose to become an Interior Designer?: I grew up drawing and creating and always thought being an ‘Artist’ was the only option as a child. When I realized there was an actual career for what I do now, I was immediately drawn to the field. At first, (like many others...) I originally thought Interior Design meant decorating but I quickly found gratification in creating not just visually appealing but functional and safe environments for people to use.
What is one goal you'd like to accomplish in your lifetime?: To design something internationally and have my parents see/visit it.
