About 

Hello!

I'm Laney and I am an intern architect in New York, NY.

I hold a 5-year NAAB accredited B.Arch from the University of Oklahoma with a minor in business, and I am currently pursuing an MFA in Industrial Design at Parsons.

I am an eager, self-motivated individual who possesses a passion for art and architecture, and looks forward to expanding my knowledge of design. Although I am still in school I am working towards licensure by logging AXP hours and taking the ARE. I will soon be looking for full-time employment that will allow me to continue my pursuit of licensure in the state of New York.

When I am not working away on my thesis or studying for my next ARE, I enjoy traveling, cycling, wood turning, and continuing my hunt for the best cup of coffee in NYC (suggestion welcome!).
