Originally from Long Island, New York, Emily has always had a passion for drawing, art and the living landscape. She earned her degree at Pennsylvania State University, which allowed her study opportunities in Germany and Barcelona. While living abroad she saw how every city has their own story and culture though the way people interact with the landscape. She is looking forward to designing spaces that become favorites of those who use them. On the weekends, she loves to explore the beauty of San Diego and Southern California. She hopes to be able to catch a wave soon to keep up with the California lifestyle.
