I am a recent graduate with a Masters Degree in Architecture from UNLV in Las Vegas, NV. During my academic career, I have worked on a range of projects including: Civic Design, Sustainable Housing, and Urban Design. In my graduate studio which was instructed by Gensler of Nevada, my thesis project utilized street performance, and performance art venues as an Urban intervention for Downtown Las Vegas. The pedagogy of the Gensler studio provided me with valuable experiences in design methodology, and skills in collaboration, teamwork, and idea sharing. My goal is to land an internship with an architectural or urban design firm, and complete my path to licensure.
