I'm a recent graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, an Ivy-League university in Philly currently ranking #5 on U.S. News and World Report's list of top national universities. I am passionate about architecture, particularly historic architecture, as well as interior design. Though I plan to pursue a Master's degree in Architecture in the future (possibly even a dual degree in Architecture and Preservation), I am currently looking to gain professional experience in the fields of Architecture and Design.

University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, US, Bachelors, Architecture
As an Undergraduate Architecture major within the College of Arts and Sciences at Penn, I completed three years of studio-based design courses. These courses ranged in subject from building design, to product design, to landscape architecture, with projects that involved elements of photography, digital and physical model construction and the creation of realistic renderings and eye-catching visual displays for our in-gallery reviews. The studio courses were paired alongside a series of Art/Architectural History courses, as well as courses in Architectural Theory, meant to broaden our knowledge and understanding of the profession's place within our society today. The program was taught by professors within the University of Pennsylvania's Graduate School of Design.
Additionally, I received minors in French Studies and Art History.
University of Pennsylvania School of Design at the American Academy in Paris, Paris, France , Study Abroad
A five-week program that took place at the American Academy in Paris, taught by Penn's School of Design, that studied the architectural history of Paris and its surroundings. The course culminated in a photography project as well as a term paper. My focus was on the fabrication of "natural" elements for the city - such as the winding pathways and contrived vistas of the Parc des Buttes-Chaumont - as the most successful means of eradicating undesirable aspects of French history and building on psychological needs of the period.
