Arjun is a graduate from the M.Arch. 2 program at the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc). He saw his time at SCI-Arc as the ideal opportunity to expand his architectural design capabilities and develop technical skill sets for his professional career as a passionate individual who is grateful for the opportunity to influence the built environment. Before joining SCI-Arc, he had been working as a licensed architect in India. He is currently pursuing his LEED certification along with his ARE exams.

Outside the field of architecture, I have worked alongside NGOs to build low-cost housing and ancient temple restorations.
