About 

The best designers break the rules; they aren't afraid to think outside the box, take risks or draw attention to new ideas. I am a Rensselaer graduate seeking an entry-level design position at an architectural firm where my ambition and knowledge can be used to further advance the practice and bring new design ideas to the table. With a minor in Sustainabilities and certification as a LEED Green Associate, I am a creative problem solver at heart, striving to develop the most effective solutions at the highest standards.
