About 

Hi, 

 I received my Masters degree in Architecture last year and currently looking forward to earning hours towards my OAA certification to become an important and creative player in the development of Toronto in the future. Up until December of last year I had the happy opportunity of working at LAMAS Inc., an architecture studio from New York, where I worked on retail and residential projects in an environment that embraced multidisciplinary skills.

I am currently working on a new personal project , a quarterly publication, that explores relationships between architecture and politics, art, humor and  philosophy through drawing, photography and essays. In addition, this year I will be designing small scale installations for dance events in a downtown Toronto club.
