About 

Bachelor of Architecture, Pratt Institute School of Architecture, May 2011

As a recent graduate of Pratt Architecture, I seek to work in an architecture firm that emphasizes on intelligent sustainable designs and challenges the dimensions of the architecture realms. Being a native New Yorker, I believe that this city has many grand styles of architecture that symbolize the power and awe of the city of New York.

My goals and aspirations as a young architectural designer expand into the design and  business dimension of architecture firms. I believe that the architecture firm is truly a stage for interdisciplinary accumulation of knowledge and skills from many backgrounds. I look forward to applying and integrating my education and skills into future projects.

While working as an engineering designer, I have experienced many processes that involve design development, client services, material research, and product delivery. I have proven ability to work in coordination with several team members and individually. Additionally, I also have a strong sense of taking initiative and following organized systems. Many of these skills and traits that I possess are experiences from my 6+ years of leadership roles on the DCH Racing club team.
