Previously, I was heavily involved with performing arts including dance and theater, but later learned my desire for designing interior and exterior environments both residential and commercial spaces. After working for a competitive design build firm as the lead interior designer, I developed my skill set further in Construction Project Management and Owner Representation. An intriguing aspect of the A/C/E industry is the constant change that requires infinite learning.
Over the years I've sustained many freelance design clients, which empowered me to open my own company, Claire's Perspective. I hope to continue to influence people and their surrounding environments through creative and thoughtful design practices.Project Types:
