Having graduated with a B.S. in Architecture (High Honors) in December of 2011, I plan to pursue a dual Masters degree program at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Architecture and Urban Planning beginning in the fall of 2012.
I have academic / professional interests in architectural history, historic preservation, green building, public works (schools, cultural centers, museums), vernacular architecture, urban design, city & community planning, landscape urbanism, new urbanism, and inquiring into the role of biologically-inspired solutions in the pursuit of more sustainable design.
In my free time, I enjoy volunteering as well as reaching out to younger students in my community who may be interested in pursuing a career in architecture or other related fields.
