Aurea is an outside of the box thinker who is interested in people and teamwork. After graduating from San Jose State University with a BFA in Interior Design, she worked at a small firm in the South Bay with a focus on commercial design in the tech field where she garnered experience in projects throughout all phases. She’s learned the importance of listening to clients’ needs, communicating solutions and building relationships. She derives inspiration for design from natural systems and believes that the best design is achieved through empathy, thoughtfulness and intent.
Outside of work, Aurea spends her time bouldering at her local climbing gym and in-line skating—or biking—around beautiful Santa Cruz.
