About 

I am currently in the final year of a three-year Master of Architecture program at Clemson University , and I recieved a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from the University of South Carolina. Many ask why I made the switch from engineering to architecture, the simple answer is that while I enjoy the science of engineering, I appreciate the subjective qualities of architecture. This combination has afforded me a unique skill set involving the synthesis of systematic critical thinking solutions and theoretical concepts to form an architecture that is functional, enhances life and inspires human potential.
