3D Environmental Designer


Hi there,

I’m an Environmental Designer with 5 years of experience designing for built environments spanning Exhibits, Events, and Retail using multiple 3D programs, hand sketching, mood boards, and design intent packages.

I’ve been contracting since the pandemic and have been lucky to work on a variety of work. I did a complete retail redesign of Chubbies, a men’s swimwear company, Costco displays, automotive tradeshows, Tik-Tok corporate event stage, visual merchandising and modeling for Therabody, and designed a Gymshark x Whitney Simmons event.

In the before Covid times, during 2018 – 2020 I designed tradeshows and exhibits for major food and beverage, technology, athletic, and medical companies at Group Delphi in San Francisco.

In 2017, I interned at IDL Worldwide in Portland to do retail design for Sanuk, Columbia Footwear, Kids Footlocker, Under Armour, and more. That same year I received my B.S. in Industrial Design with a Sustainability minor from The Art Institute of Portland.

While in college, I designed parts at a 3D printing manufacturing facility, did Product Styling at Nike, and was the student shop manager of the wood and metal shop at my college.

My and I husband recently moved to the LA area and are currently enjoying the extended summer there. My dream job would be to make spaces, systems, or products sustainable while making people feel a part of and experience the world around them in interesting ways. I love plants, board games, eating outside, flea markets, and playing frisbee.

A lot of people knew my dog Cheerio, she would eagerly come to work with me every day and just about everywhere else. She will forever be in my heart thinking of her always, my best friend.


I am currently available for new projects or full-time positions.
