Hello! I am a young designer and thinker embarking upon the professional field of architecture. Formerly educated in architecture, design, and anthropology, I continue to enrich my work and perspective with other areas of personal interest: agriculture, cultural anthropology, linguistics, cognitive science, and literature. My interests are broad; however, I am excited to continue to refine my design intent while learning from professional and adventurous experiences.
