EDUCATION Boston University (BS)
STAYCATION I always love being in Naples for vacation. The beaches, the food and the more relaxed pace are more reminiscent of the old Florida charm.
ALWAYS DREAMED OF Studying architecture and visiting places around the world to understand more about the current trends and cutting-edge designs.
“COVID changed the way we all live and this is reflected in the design trends in the home-building industry. Floor plans with large, open great rooms, flexible spaces and home offices are in high demand.”
