I am a dynamic and ambitious architectural student undergoing my thesis year as an undergraduate student at NewSchool of Architecture + Design in San Diego, CA. I am a strong believer in the notion that we as a society are, for better or worse, different people in different places and that a powerful design has the influence to transform and enhance the built environment for its inhabitants. This theory has empowered me to seek a comprehensive understanding of the power of design.
