About 

I graduated from the University of Michigan with a Bachelor of Science degree in Architecture at Taubman College of Architecture + Urban Planning. I have minors in sustainability and art & design. I enjoy traveling and thinking about architecture on both the micro and urban scale as well improving existing infrastructures within the city. I am eager to raise questions, reinterpret and reactivate existing contexts. I am interested in enhancing human experiences by understanding and integrating the natural environment with the public realm.

Awards 

Wallenberg Fellowship Finalist, Other

Participating Colleges in the University of Michigan chooses two students to represent them for the fellowship opportunity to compete with the other programs. My proposal was selected and moved forward as a Finalist.

Brief Proposal: The yearlong investigation seeks to compare territories (Ecuador and Brazil) currently dealing with internal and external globalization that focuses on resources dealing with energy extraction or urban transformation for tourist revenue, while then producing a collection of maps, architectural drawings, and personal stories that trace the effects of globalization within homes to the source in order to contribute to the anthropocene conversation at large.
