5th year B.Arch student graduating from Virginia Tech May 2021 seeking an entry level architecture position. Well versed in Revit, AutoCAD, SketchUp, Rhino, VRay, and the Adobe Creative Suite. Internship experience includes construction documentation, surveying, producing graphic material for client meetings, and contributing to schematic design within a team.

I strive to produce work that responds to client vision, addresses the needs/context of a community, and ultimately improves lives. I enjoy projects that explore innovative approaches to issues ranging from the climate crisis and socioeconomic/racial inequality to materiality, detailing, and opportunities for computational design.

City of Rotterdam Conference Invitation to Present Work, Other

During my study abroad at TU Delft, I took coursework that involved extensive field work, research, and analysis about the socio-spatial inequality present in the neighborhood of Tarwewijk in South Rotterdam. A representative from the City of Rotterdam attended our final presentations and invited my group (3 of us - equal, collaborative participation) to present the work at a conference where they would be discussing the inequality issues in that area. It was a very memorable and meaningful experience to be able to bring everything we learned from our research, and most importantly, from speaking with community members, to light in a setting where it could really make a difference.
