Hi! I'm Cortnie,
an Interior Designer, Architectural Drafter, blogger + world traveler. Graduating with honors from the Illinois Institute of Art, I hold a BFA in Interior Design and started out creating unique interior solutions for residential clients.
After moving to southern California in 2007, I worked with international design firm, Gettys, where I gained experience with commercial and hospitality projects, while at the same time fine-tuning my proficiency as an architectural drafter. I was a designer on a multitude of high-end, new build and renovation projects all over the world, ranging from hotel lobbies + guest rooms to restaurants + spas.
Living abroad in Okinawa, Japan from 2009 to 2013, I have been afforded the incredible opportunity to travel extensively throughout Asia, a continent rich in bright colors, beautiful patterns + historic design.
Since calling Austin home in the fall of 2013, I have been privileged to work with the prestigious structural engineering firm, Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates, Inc. Through them, I have been given the opportunity to work with a wider range of structures, as well as became an ADDA Certified Drafter. I bring my technical excellence, experience in the industry + passion for beautiful design to each and every one of my projects.
