About 

I am currently a candidate to obtain my Master's in Architecture Degree at the University of Pennsylvania. I love traveling and continuously being on the move; never stagnant. When I do happen to be stagnant, I am playing the guitar, reading, or socializing with those around me. I love interacting with new people on a daily basis and forming new relationships, two circumstances that I cherish, as to understand and appreciate each walk of life I am introduced to.
