About 

I am an Architecture Masters student that will graduate in May form the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I have had a technical undergraduate experience followed by a internship where I mainly did construction documents, and schematic renderings. However my graduate experience has been more on research of material constraints in digital fabrication I am also interested in how we can use digital technology in our designs to change how people interact within our spaces.
