As a student enrolled in a dual degree program, I am aware of the innovative thinking involved in design-driven environment and the commitment needed to succeed. I have experienced skills in computer design, technical drafting, sustainable design systems, and business administration.

My graduate thesis project was located in New Haven based on the idea of providing the community with a health and wellness center. Personally I am very passionate about improving overall communities with higher standards of living. This began with my trip to Haiti in 2011 and followed through into my thesis and eventual Dean’s List achievement in 2012. The various awards, team involvement, and leadership roles exemplify my work ethic as well as my organizational skills prove to be a positive attribute constituting my ability to take on responsibilities.
