Master of architecture graduate at one of the nation's most highly reputed graduate schools in the subject of Architecture, Washington University in St. Louis. This school offered me an excellent education and experience within the field of architecture. Raised in the St. Louis area, the program focused strongly on what was familiar territory for me, while providing exceptional understanding and distinct knowledge of the architecture in St. Louis. In addition, this program offered a wide variety of semester abroad options, including my choice of traveling to Barcelona and Buenos Aires, affording me unique experiences of rich architecture cultures outside the United States.

Currently, I am seeking a permanent job position in the field of architecture.

Objective: to obtain a professional position in the field of architecture, urban design or urban planning, merging creativity with artistic and visual skills.
