About 

In May of 2020 I graduated with a Master of Architecture from the University of Texas at Austin, and I have since been working for a firm specializing in highly detailed residential and boutique commercial projects. In May of 2017, I graduated from Arizona State University with a BSD in Architectural Studies and a minor in Sustainability. I have worked as an architectural intern in California, Arizona, Texas, and New York. These internships have awarded me experience in varying scales from a primary school library in Mahiga, Kenya to a civic center on a 43 acre site in Tucuman, Argentina. I care deeply about people, their everyday lives, and the value of structured and experienced space.
