Education 

Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS, US, MArch, APD Design

My education at Kansas State University has also prepared me for the field of architecture. I learned design principles through hand drawing and 3d modeling. Kansas State emphasizes mastery of the knowledge, skills and understandings essential to the artful creation of buildings, spaces and places. The many software programs in the curriculum prepared me for my past internships as well as the next career opportunity.
