My passion for design centers on cultivating interdisciplinary tactics and ideas across fields to enhance the built environment. I am eager to engage in the formation of equitable and engaging spaces for local communities by cultivating design-thinking. I have professional experience in both conceptual design work and creating construction documents, as well as collaborating directly and effectively with firm principals and team members. I would love to discuss my abilities and passion as a flexible, self-motivated, and conscientious designer; please reach out if I can answer any questions!
