About 

We must not merely be the artisans of space and place but rather, the shepherds.

Inherent in the beauty of studying architecture, all frustration aside, is its lifelong voyage of discoveries and experiences to which we owe the evolution of ourselves.  I was fortunate enough to experience the rigor and diligence of two complementary but distinct architectural pedagogies. Roger Williams University instilled my passion for perfecting analog techniques, but most of all, the significance of transcribing spatial ideas across the mediums of mind, pencil, paper, and physical realization.  At Pratt Institute I was able to use that foundation to develop outstanding proficiency in 3D modeling, rendering, and design. Honing my communication skills was critical in enabling a confident conveyance of provocative ideas, and just as important to couple with an ability to express design ideas to clients on a much more personal level.   Each teaching strategy challenged varying measures of my character but more so, tested my capacity to adapt and evolve with the industry and institutional transition towards digital methodologies. This swift transformation afforded me an extremely dynamic skill set balanced by an aspiring open mind.
