In a strange way, architecture is really an unfinished thing, because even though the building is finished, it takes on a new life. It becomes part of a new dynamic: how people will occupy it, use it, think about it.
– Daniel Libeskind
I started out trying to create buildings that would sparkle like isolated jewels; now I want them to connect, to form a new kind of landscape, to flow together with contemporary cities and the lives of their peoples.
– Zaha Hadid
Teresa is a set and production designer originally from New Orleans, LA and currently based in New York City. Blending her heritage and background in architecture with a passion for storytelling, she loves creating new worlds and experiences that envelop audiences. Her design process always starts with a question: How can the story-spectator relationship be amplified? Teresa thrives in collaborative environments, creating rich, honest work with deep roots. Her hope is to design work that will connect with others on an emotional level while simultaneously providing an outlet for enjoyment. When not working, you can find Teresa catching a musical or on the search for delicious southern cuisine.

I draw in inspiration from all around me. From buildings to books and films. But one of my favorite forms of inspiration is the people in my life. Especially the women of my family. I was happy to show just a small way they inspire me by being apart of the "1MOVE: DES19NED BY..." series created by the Movement Theatre Company. A designer-driven initiative where the designer acts with absolute freedom as the lead artist to create digital content in response to the social and political issues affecting their world, namely anti-Blackness, global uprisings, and COVID-19.
