I am an aspiring architect with a passion for creating socially and environmentally sustainable design. I believe architecture should be rooted within the surrounding landscape or urban condition and that the two are dependent upon each other to create a rich environment for people to inhabit.
I’m am also marketing creative for a structural engineering firm focused on providing innovative and sustainable design solutions. With a background and education in architecture, I’m currently focused on expanding my professional development and marketing skills in the A/E industry.
