About 

I have recently completed my Master of Architecture program at the University of Toronto's Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design. Over the years during both my undergraduate and graduate education I have gained valuable knowledge and skills in architectural theory and design. This knowledge includes sustainable technology, structural and building envelope detailing, and various modes of design representation such as orthographic drawings, physical and digital models, and computer renderings.

I am interested in architecture's practical application and interaction with communities and individual occupants. More specifically, I aspire to work on projects such as health care facilities, community centers, housing, and shelters. Throughout my education and various work experience I have been able to adapt quickly to each environment as I am organized and always eager to learn new skills.
