My name is Kevin Medina, a recent graduate from the University at Buffalo. As a young designer, my career goal is to be a licensed Architect while being an advocate for sustainable and resilient design through LEED AP certification. My hope is to have these interests included within design development, in order to help cultivate cultural identity through design exploration, and create green building studies that will seek the best interest of the overall community, such as Passive House design. For the sake of  having social responsibility for future generations, my endeavor will be to help secure the vitality of communities so that others may prosper.
