About 

I am a recent BArch graduate from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY. An interest of mine is the artistic side of architecture, and I graduated with a minor in Studio Arts. I like to explore the relationship between art and architecture and am looking for a firm to work for that is exploring this same relationship. My thesis looked into art and architecture and the culture driving the two fields, as well as how to use new technologies to create an architecture to indulge the artists and spur their creativity. You can see a little more on my thesis project is in the work samples that are attached. I feel that art has a place in architecture, and that through the creative process of art, my designing of architecture has been taken to a new level, both aesthetically and functionally.
