I have completed my undergraduate degree from Kent State University’s College of Architecture and Environmental Design (CAED) and have obtained my Masters of Architecture Degree in August of 2011. During my third year of undergraduate studies I studied abroad in Italy. Throughout my semester abroad, I lived in Florence, and traveled around Italy and other parts of Europe. That experience gained insights to different types of architecture. I was also able to do some traveling during my graduate studies to Dubai, UAE. This was a trip dedicated to participating in Sustainability Seminars at different universities, where students presented their spring semester projects.
A major accomplishment in my graduate studies was entering the winning design for the Matrix Design Competition (MATTr). I designed a tunnel like structure, and with the help of my colleagues, it was constructed over a sidewalk outside Taylor Hall at Kent State University.

Also during my graduate studies, I participated in the Second Annual Kent State University International Symposium on Sustainable Value Chain, publishing my paper “Use of Urban Agriculture to Revitalize Shrinking Cities: Case of Cleveland, OH”. I am looking forward to starting my career and becoming an architect.
