About 

As a native of New Mexico and a college graduate of Arizona, I have cultivated a passion for the southwestern desert landscape and the opportunities that it offers to those who contribute to the built environment. While pursuing my undergraduate architecture degree at the University of Arizona's CAPLA, I was drawn to numerous design-build projects, as these opportunities allowed me to apply architectural theory to real-world applications. I am very much interested in how we, as architects, relate 3D environments into 2D graphics, and enjoy learning new programs and techniques that allow me to more fully and carefully articulate this transition.

Employment 

Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, NM, US, Architectural Intern

During the summer months of 2010, 2011, and 2012 (May-August), I interned for the resident architect at the CMRR division of LANL. CMRR denotes the Chemistry and Metallurgical Research Replacement division, which was initiated to design and construct a replacement research facility on the LANL campus. I participated in the project by sketching and drafting design corrections/substitutions, as well as designs pertaining to outfitting the newly constructed portion of the project. In addition, I was in charge of organizing the complete record of project construction documents. Code applicability was also of importance, so I aided by finding and documenting the codes pertaining to the design issue at hand.
