About 

Currently, I am enrolled at Michigan Technological University, where I am pursuing a Master of Science in Applied Natural Resource Economics. My course of study is an opportunity to formally study many macro and micro topics surrounding urban design, including economic theory, public and environmental policy, natural resource management, and market analysis. The project-based learning opportunities allow me to utilize my previous work experience and education in architecture and urban design to provide concrete,
creative solutions in sustainable and innovative design.
