I spent my time at college studying the emerging importance and real-world application of sustainable building design beyond its often shallow, marketable use in the public sphere. My portfolio reflects my respect for passive design and cradle-to-cradle approach and examines modern social issues in an urban context. This enduring sense of environmental responsibility is the impetus of my current pursuit for a socially responsible career that redefines the traditional boundaries of the architectural profession.
I'm currently pursuing LEED AP BD+C and architectural license.
