About 

I am an energetic young architect with a creative mind and self-discipline developed through years of allied design experience in the fields of architecture and environmental graphics. Capable in both physical model production, and digital 3d modeling, I have often made immediate contributions as a design team member upon employment. 

During my employment at Modative, I ventured in multiple stages of projects including site analysis preparation, client presentations, bidding and contractor communications, construction drawing preparation, drawing submissions, 3D modeling, material research and selection, and site visits, while assisting multiple colleagues in meeting their deadlines. As an Intern Designer at CC Design Development, I expanded my experience in both stages of design and production, and once again I was trusted to quickly adapt to the new work environment and ensure on-time delivery of multiple projects. 

In 2015, While at the University of Westminster As a graduate student, I was invited by Michael Weinstock to join the EmTech team at The AA as a volunteering student for assistance on completion of their Timber Expo project “TWIST”, featured in ArchDaily. I was assigned into the fabrication team where we presented solutions for the joint connections, and produced multiple prototype models.

As a recent graduate, with a Masters degree in Architecture & Digital Media, I have the talents and strong work ethics to make considerable contributions to any firm.
