I am a recent graduate from the New Jersey Institute of Technology with a Bachelor of Architecture and a Master of Infrastructure Planning. I'm looking to learn more about the built environment and the interrelated issues that influence it: socio-economic, political, financial, environmental, etc. issues. I'm also highly interested in design and planning research and speculative projects, as well as other architectural theory.
