I am a recent graduate of the University of Virginia's School of Architecture with a Bachelor's of Science in Architecture.  I am passionate about all things housing, from looking for work in residential design to volunteering with Habitat for Humanity to working as a Resident Advisor at UVA.  I love designing both with pen to paper and through digital modelling software.  I hope to make an impact on housing at multiple levels through my work.
