about alethea

Born and raised in the UK, I came to NYC for a year, fell in love with the vibrancy and energy of the city, and stayed. Almost 20 years later, I am still here! I now live in Clinton Hill in Brooklyn with my husband and 16 month old son.

I have an art school background, gaining my Bachelor of Architecture from Pratt Institute, and I have almost 15 years of experience as an architect (licensed in the State of New York) and interior designer, including several years as an Associate at STUDIOS Architecture and as a Senior Associate at Lee H. Skolnick Architecture + Design Partnership. I've worked on high end residential, corporate and retail interiors for companies such as MTV Networks, Nokia, Disney Publishing, Miramax Films, Nike and Time, Inc. and most recently on a new campus for Aileron (check out the Aileron project - it's pretty amazing).

I have been taking photographs since I was a child. Although I work entirely in digital format now, I have had darkroom experience and shot with an SLR for a while before switching to digital. I have also always loved children, teaching and volunteering in various K-6 classrooms over the years.
