Alexandria, VA, US



I am a young, energetic student graduating with a Masters of Architecture from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, May 2016. My philosophy is that architecture is not merely an occupation, but a way of life. With this consideration, I strive to find the correct solution to an architectural problem by methodically pursuing all rational avenues. My colleagues describe me as enthusiastic, insightful, and unrelentingly hardworking. This site exhibits a selection of academic works which highlights my talents in consideration of future employment.
