As a former student at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, California I am trained in the intersection between architecture and design. I have an anthropological perspective on the design process which is definitely based on my bachelor's degree in nursing. Design, nursing and anthropology complement each other well, and I am able to benefit from their common fields of knowledge. I believe craft traditions are a celebration of our contemporary lives and our culture, and I find great interest in contributing to the work and life of skilled artisans.
