About 

I am an architectural, furniture, and landscape designer in Miami, FL. Currently, I work as the CNC-router programmer at the millwork and fabrication sister company of a general contractor. My role in the company has included project management and drafting. I have done volunteer work that encompasses landscape and architectural design, specifically, in the design of a neighborhood park. I am also on the board of Treemendous Miami, which is a local non-profit that restores and recreates native habitats in the greater-Miami area. I am passionate about creating spaces that foster community and connect people to the environment around them. Now, I am seeking employment at an architecture firm that pursues projects that enhance communities and bridge the outdoors and the indoors.
