About 

With a professionalized bachelors in architecture and a minor in art history, I continuously strive toward finding ways to connect  the two fields in my work. Living in a creatively diverse city such as Los Angeles allows me to explore art and its role as a socially driven, communally inclusive medium. Furthermore, I enjoy finding ways to engage in design at a multidisciplinary level, allowing me to approach situations at a macro and micro scale.

I am keen on becoming more experienced with community projects, residential housing projects, art galleries, installations, and public spaces.  My overall aim is to convey the various cultures and social attitudes of Los Angeles through art and architecture. I enjoy working in groups composed of like-minded individuals, have no trouble focusing on interesting and forward-thinking projects, and willingly accept challenges that will push me to better myself and those around me.

 

Skills and Qualifications include:

Attentive to project site, structure, program, and sustainability. Ability to work successfully under pressure and within deadlines.
