Kristin Firine is a project manager for Gramercy Design; a boutique design studio providing architecture, interior design, and bespoke furniture design and build services. Earning a degree with honors from the University of New Haven, Kristin began eagerly interning the summer before sophomore year. From tile showrooms to commercial design firms she gained as much experience as possible. Upon graduation she was brought on full time by a design build firm before moving onto an architectural associate at Mark P. Finlay Architects in Southport, CT. Realizing that New York City was her true fit, she moved to accept her current position in January of 2019. She began her journey with ASID Connecticut as both president-elect of her student chapter in college, as well as Student Rep to the Board for her states chapter. As a two-term Student Rep to the Board, Kristin quickly moved onto Emerging Professionals Chair and then Communications director. Always stepping into leadership roles, she quickly learned that ASID provides networking and career advancement benefits for every professional. She is excited to continue her journey with ASID NY Metro as Director At-Large.
