About 

I’m a graduate student at California Polytechnic University, Pomona working toward a masters degree in architecture.

My interest in design comes from marveling at the built environment and watching the world develop. I'm inspired by advances in technology and material culture while remaining a student of history, and my main pursuit is to integrate a wide variety of influences and concepts that best represent the human condition. This viewpoint has yielded a broad range of experience that allows me to contribute creatively and technically to project teams.

My goal is to begin the NCARB AXP program this Summer, as part of a long-term plan to become a licensed architect in a well-managed design-driven firm.
