About 

I’ve had a passion for architecture since I was young. With three years of professional experience, I am seeking a starting position or another internship with the aspiration of working as an architectural designer. I graduated from Arizona State University with a bachelor’s of Science in Design in Architectural Studies. My interests lie in modern, deconstructive, and high-tech architecture as well as infrastructure and lifestyle. Having a flexible lifestyle, I adapt to challenges and obstacles in my path. I thrive in fast pace environments and enjoy helping out and learning all that I can. I strive to improve quality of life and to better others’ lives through design. With this mindset I aim to work in an internationally oriented firm so that I can see the world with well rounded perspectives.
