As part of my education, I worked on the design of a variety of projects ranging from public parks and single family homes to large scale multi-purpose complexes. With varying degree I developed projects through the conceptual stages and into the construction phase, modeling spatial and tectonic relationships and drafting construction documents. In 2010 I took part in the three separate RPI Bedford Initiatives, consisting of a class, a design development studio, and a merit-based travelling workshop to China, where I gained experience working in a multidisciplinary environment with civil engineering students. Integrating this education—where I learned to be an innovative problem solver—with my personal creative and organizational strengths, I have become a passionate designer with the ability to multitask in an extremely efficient manner.
