A critical eye for detail with an intense focus on pushing the envelope with design. I am a young professional working towards a future of high design and quality work. I enjoy working at various scales and on various project types. I believe that architecture can be functional without sacrificing beauty. The sort of work that appeals to me is public in nature, creating inclusive spaces instead of design for only the wealth.
