I am currently a Master of Architecture student at Wentworth Institute of Technology. In my graduate studies I am examining how environment, economy and culture effect our notion of place and methods of construction. I am eager to network with the architecture community and explore affiliated fields such as real estate development and urban planning. I complete projects with a detail oriented, versatile and innovative approach. I am always eager to learn from new experiences and welcome challenging situations.
