About 

I am a recent M. Arch I  graduate of Syracuse University's School of Architecture.  

Through my professional and academic experiences, I have developed a robust set of quantitative, analytical, and creative capabilities. The organization, planning, and adaptability required for my ecological research projects at Bard College continues to shape my approach to design.  The collaborative studio environment at Syracuse encouraged curiosity and fostered my rapid development of new skills, enabling me to adapt to emerging techniques in mapping, diagramming, and rendering.   My most recent thesis work reveals a latent social + economic platform in support of urban agriculture in Brooklyn and engages one of the borough’s most pervasive infrastructures: the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway.  I pursue research-based design through the identification and critical imaging of potentials, and I look forward to challenging new methods of visual communication and design in my professional career.
