University College London (UCL), MArch, Graduate Architectural Design
In pursuit of a MArch from the Bartlett I expanded my understanding of architectural design, both in terms of technical strategies and conceptual methodologies exposing myself to a variety of design cultures and paradigms allowing me to continue the research I began at Woodbury.
At the Bartlett, my research expanded on the interrogation of sketch and architectural drawing utilizing time, sequence, and film as vessels to explore the built environment.
Woodbury University, Burbank, CA, US, BArch, BArch
In pursuit of a BArch from Woodbury University; I have developed a diverse understanding of 2D and 3D computer design software, with an ability to quickly become proficient with new software. I developed a predominately strong background and interest in model making as well as furniture design with a variety of tools and materials.
I concluded my undergraduate education by interrogating the notion of sketch with a thesis dedicated to the understanding and integration of physical object making in relation to the architectural design process.
