My interest in being an architect lies in my passion for all things design.  It is my intention to create good architecture that inspires the people that use it.  I want to work at a firm dedicated to creating beautifully crafted designs that prove to be sustainable and regenerative over time.  I am a highly motivated, inventive, and energetic individual with a desire to learn more within the profession.  One of my many talents is my ability to communicate and relate with others which creates a great level of collaboration on projects.  I cherish the time I spent studying and traveling abroad which has helped develop my skills as a designer through viewing urban contexts and gaining exposure to various cultures.
