Recently graduated from the Master of Urban Design at UC Berkeley, where I grew my design skills to serve the greater community through groundbreaking designs, using the Bay Area as an urban lab. I like to consider my role as an Architect and urban designer in current global issues, from climate change and rising sea levels to social equity and cultural integration. 

I have worked as a professional Architect for eight years in Dubai, where I gained significant experience executing designs from concept to detail stages, solving spatial complexities, and facilitating multi-discipline cross-Coordination. I worked on impactful large-scale projects forming the emerging master planning of cities in the GCC, the Middle East, and Africa.

I am eager to work on Urban and Architectural projects in the
unique urban landscape of California and the States.
