I am currently a student at the University of Minnesota finishing up my Bachelor of Design in Architecture. I have not had any work experience in a firm as of yet, but will be searching for internships soon. What I enjoy most about architecture is the quality of emotion finished spaces create and how that relates to how a space is defined.
In my free time I enjoy making props for various things, playing video games, Hurling, and reading to name a few.
