I will graduate from Wentworth Institute of Technology in April 2014 with a Master of Architecture. In my architectural education, I am focusing on the affects of environment, economy, and culture on vernacular design and construction. I am eager to network with the architecture community and further explore the related fields of architecture: facilities management, real estate development, and urban planning. I accomplish projects in a detail oriented, versatile and innovative manner. I am always eager to learn from new experiences and welcome challenging situations. I am passionate about volunteer work and traveling.
