I earned my B.Arch from the Hillier College of Architecture and Design (NJIT) in December 2020, where I had the opportunity to study both a theoretical, conceptual, as well as technical approach to Architecture and the Arts, receiving insight toward both a "A"rchitecture as well as "a"rchitecture.  I had an opportunity to replicate the Monte dei Paschi International Competition for the Design of Piazza Matteotti, through a study abroad program to Siena and Rome in Italy during Summer 2019.  In addition to this I completed the 75 hour course, with the Center for Real Estate Education here in New Jersey.

I have been involved in an extensive amount of leadership opportunities as a student, showing resolve as a 2 year term Vice President for the local Greek Life chapter of Phi Sigma Kappa, Alpha Octaton.  I lead several Philanthropic events, raising thousands of dollars for charity.  This as well as being a Student Senate representative for 2 years for the Architecture major within HCAD.  

My interests focus mostly on conceptual development, urban planning, and large scale developmental ideologies and projects that do not disregard the site they are placed within, or rather site specific projects.
