Primarily interested in large-scale residential and mixed-used developments, I began my study of architecture at Washington University in St. Louis. There I was taught the principles of design, and how to incrementally develop a neighborhood one piece at a time. Through a number of highly diverse projects and rigorous work, I graduated with a Bachelor's of Science in Architecture and a Bachelor's of Arts degree in Economics.
Upon accepted to USC's +2 Master's of Architecture program as a Graduate Research Scholar, I brought my desires to combat suburban sprawl, and create transit-oriented-development at USC. I felt this was the best place for me considering Los Angeles is abundant in the aforementioned plight of urbanism. It lacks succinct continuity and fails to construct pleasant walkable centers.
I wish to bring together principles of sustainability, everyday urbanism, and a general positive attitude towards the design field once my schooling is complete in May 2012.
