About 

I am currently finishing a term of service with Americorps during which I have been working with the New York City Housing Authority to sustain resident groups with various "green initiatives". I have facilitated green event planning, planting designs, fundraising, data analysis, and community outreach. I hope to get back into focusing mostly on landscape architecture in the near future.

Design corresponds with my attitude on life - changing, yet adhering to common sense and reasoning. It requires a holistic view on conceptualization, feasible opportunities, and social responsibilities. Design not only requires knowledge and skill, it creates knowledge and skill.
