About 

I am currently a graduate student at Washington University in St. Louis in the Architecture program and Construction Management program. Both degrees will be completed in December 2011; I am excited about my career in architecture and looking to working in a larger city. Anyone who knows me well knows my passions: I love all aspects of design and construction. I love traveling and experiencing architecture and culture. I love the human aspects of architecture. In my undergraduate education at the University of Florida I received my Bachelors Degrees in Architecture and Psychology, and enjoy integrating my psychological knowledge into architectural concepts.

I recently had the time of my life studying abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Spending a semester taking Washington University architecture classes while being immersed in the culture of South America was an amazing once-in-a-lifetime experience. Having traveled throughout Bolivia, Peru, Chile, Brazil, Uruguay, and Argentina, I have many new adventures and memories. While at architecture school at the University of Florida, I had the time of my life studying abroad in Vicenza, Italy and visiting Italy, Spain, France, Germany, Switzerland, Norway, Turkey, The United Kingdom, Ireland, and the Vatican.

The life you lead is a Legacy. Have Fun. Be Happy. Live It Well
