I am a recent graduate of the M.Arch program at Columbia University’s GSAPP. During my time there, I bacame interested in how architecture can improve cities and the lives of the people who inhabit them. My coursework had led me to work on projects in place such as Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic, Mars, Hoboken, NJ and lower Manhattan. I previously attended the College of Architecture at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, GA, and graduated with a 3.74 GPA, receiving highest honors. While at Tech, I studied architecture, urban form, and social/urban issues in the city of Barcelona at Universidad Politécnica de Catalonia as part of a study abroad summer program. I have work published in the book Research & Design: Textile Tectonics, edited by Lars Spuybroek, and my project titled La Línea Baja, which focuses on transforming the tourism industry in San Felipe de Puerto Plata, DR, will be published in an upcoming report by the Urban Design Lab, part of Columbia’s Earth Institute.
