My passion for architecture stems from a strong desire to understand people. As I've worked my way through architecture school I've constantly criticized my work, questioning how my design will impact the community as well as the individual. I love to draw and make things and imagine the future through design, but what makes this work meaningful to me is the hope that one day I can truly make a difference in a persons life. 

I began this journey at Morgan State University where I earned my Bachelor's of Science in Architecture and Environmental Design. I worked at all scales in my undergraduate career. Working with community members on theoretical projects, creating full scale instillations as well as designing and building personal furniture. In an effort to develop my talent further, I am currently studying at the Rhode Island School of Design where I am pursuing a M.Arch degree.
