I'm a recent graduate who knows the transformational power of architecture and urban design. From the Midwest to the Northeast and beyond, I've come to recognize the important implications of design decisions made by the architects and planners in the world.
I've spent the past seven years growing in my undergraduate and graduate educations, and my recently completed thesis investigates the ways to leverage emerging technologies to transform suburban landscapes. I enjoy looking towards the future, and thinking how the design decisions I make can transform lives.
My experiences range from construction to interning for architecture firms. I am seeking a position where I can contribute to a skilled team through the design and drawing process.
