I am a recent graduate with a Masters Degree in Architecture from UNLV, which focused on Urban and Civic design. My thesis project was advised by Gensler Architects of Nevada, and utilized street performance and performance arts venues as an urban intervention for Downtown Las Vegas. The pedagogy of the Gensler Studio provided me with valuable experience in design methodology, skills in collaboration, teamwork, and idea sharing. I’ve heightened these skills as I’ve been working towards completing my IDP at a small firm in Clearwater Florida. This firm has provided me with experiences in all phases of the design process.
