About 


My name is Allen Custer.  I am 24 year old design student studying for a Masters in Architecture with a concentration in Digital Media and a Masters in Sustainable Design at The Catholic University of America in Washington D.C.. I am persistent, focused, laid- back, detail oriented, with a West coast attitude and an East coast determination and rigor; qualities evident in my personality and in my design practices.  I work efficiently even in high stress situations. In my free time, when I ‘m not surfing, I enjoy photography, bike riding, tinkering with a new technological device, or doing something outdoors.  I tend to work best in a fast paced but laid back environment that is always giving me a chance to try something new.
