New York, NY, US



I am a graduate (junior) architect and photographer. I previously worked as a job captain at WDI Architecture in Indianapolis and as a graduate assistant with the Institute for Digital Fabrication at Ball State University, where I also completed a M.Arch II post professional degree. I gained my B.Arch from the School of Architecture at Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton FL.

I currently reside in NYC, was born in Jamaica and love travelling. I'm interested in any and every thing that has to do with design and art. Intrigued by the novelty of place, people and culture. I'm a car enthusiast who enjoys bowling, billiards, cooking and Latin music social dancing.
