Education 

Boston Architectural College (BAC), boston massachusetts, MArch, Architecture

During my Graduate studies I have become actively involved in several design-related projects ranging from an urban renewable energy grid to design competitions that focused on affordable housing, natural protection systems and a new cultural identity for the residents of Lower Roxbury. Most recently, I was afforded the opportunity to partake in a master planning redesign project with the Boston Parks & Recreation Department.

Currently I am studying for LEED Green Associate Exam; I feel that by working closely with those who have successfully completed LEED certified projects I can gain beneficial knowledge as I pursue the LEED accreditation.

In addition, I have a background in Landscape Architecture studies from Morrisville State College. Here, I was able to gain more design build experience in courses such as landscape planning & design and landscape- turf management. My Bachelors Studies at Alfred State College gave me the opportunity to explore Architecture in courses such as History and Theory, Design methods and advanced design Architectural studios.
