I am a college graduate from the University of California, San Diego with degrees in Urban Studies and Planning and Environmental Systems. Through my majors and my internship at LivingHomes, I have developed a passion for the built environment with an emphasis on green design.

I will be attending UCLA this fall for my M.Arch and am currently looking for an internship at a design, architecture, planning, or construction firm to gain exposure in the field. I am a hard working and motivated individual and am excited to to start my career.
