Education 

University of South Florida, Tampa, FL, US, MArch, Architecture and Urban Design

Studies focused primarily on traditional Architectural concepts and exploration in lower design coursework and progressed to Urban and Ecological Design in upper design courses.

Influenced greatly by USF's faculty/staff members hailing from Harvard and MIT, my studies at USF culminated in a Master's Thesis that focused on blending Ecological urbanism and Architectural disciplines to rehabilitate South Florida's deteriorating landscapes into thriving communities for plant, animal and human inhabitants.

Drawing on the inner workings of the natural environment as a primary source of inspiration and education, I am looking forward to working within a unique, forward-thinking firm that implements concepts of ecological urbanism/design to improve both constructed and natural landscapes we live in.
