Morgan Stahl

Morgan Stahl is a designer from Baltimore, Maryland. She moved to Houston to study Architecture at the University of Houston. She is in her fifth and final year of school and will graduate in May 2020. Morgan currently works at DEK Studio as a design professional on various small residential and commercial projects.
