About 

I am an architectural designer originally from California that has been transplanted in the East Coast in little Providence, Rhode Island, to pursue a masters degree in Interior Architecture at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). Being embedded in a community of artists and creative minds, it is an inspiration to my designs that tend to follow architecture more artistically in installations, follies, and building design alike.
