I am a fifth year student in Tulane's Masters of Architecture program in New Orleans, LA and am looking for employment in an architecture office. As a graduating student, I am looking forward to expanding my design interests, skill sets, and knowledge by working in a firm. My design interests range from design-build projects such as the Parisite Skate park in New Orleans, large scale planning, responding to the rising sea levels and development on the coast, and small scale design interventions. Outside of architecture I can be found outside playing sports, running, taking pictures and drawing. Traveling, exploring new places and meeting new people are passions and I am excited to see where my next step in architecture will take me!

Below shows the skate park that I participated in the design and construction of with other students in Tulane's Architecture program:
