Projects, Publications & Classwork
Interior Design Portfolio (Classwork)This is an academic portfolio of some of the projects I have completed through Iowa State's Interior Design program over the last 4 years. Each project has a description that explains the background of the project and my concept behind each design. Each of these projects challenged me in different ways and tested my ability to understand and implement the principles and elements of design. Overall, each project pushed me to be a better designer and has encouraged me to think outside of the box.
