Philadelphia, PA, US



I am currently a fifth year Bachelor of Architecture student at Philadelphia University seeking a full time architectural designer position upon graduation.

My interest in the architectural profession is to merge beautiful space with the efficiency of its use. While working on any design problem, I believe it is the architect's job to fully investigate the project's complete impact. In doing so, critical analysis of context and culture as well as program and materials aid in creating a rich design and design process.

In the profession, I am interested in working in multiple scales and on various program types, ranging from installation pieces to master planning.
