MASTER OF ARTS IN INTERIOR DESIGN
Expected on Spring 2022
Hi! My name is Viviane and I like to say I am a true carioca - a nickname for all who are born by the waters and mountains of Rio de Janeiro. My interior design approach is rooted in the vibrancy and beauty of my hometown.
I am currently completing a Masters of Arts in Interior Design at Marymount University, where I focus on being bold, translating my vision into my designs, and putting my passion for color on paper.
At Marymount I also serve as a graduate assistant and teacher's assistant. As a GA, I am responsible for organizing and coordinating student shows and events.
I also develop CIDA (Council for Interior Design Accreditation) reports, manage the School of Arts and Design supplies, conduct administrative tasks, and assist professors as needed. As a TA, I help with organization, evaluation, and critique in foundational studio classes.
Prior to pursuing a career in interior design, I spent 18 successful years as a helicopter pilot. As a pilot, I honed critical skills in organization, time management, creative dexterity, responsibility, and leadership. I have had ample opportunity to apply these skills to my coursework and jobs at Marymount, where I currently have a 4.0 cumulative GPA.
I speak fluent Portuguese and English, and have a good knowledge of Spanish and German. I am currently enjoying learning French. I love traveling, meeting new people, watching movies and - as a good carioca - going to the beach.
