About 

A recent graduate from the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Michigan. I am very interested in issues regarding sustainability and architecture, and how that can be further researched through implementation of engineering and technology in the discipline.

I enjoy learning about everything, and hold a high school diploma in piano from the American College of Musicians. I've attained a high degree of perseverance due to my experiences in music and foreign languages and am always up for a challenge. After receiving my bachelors I plan to attend graduate school to receive a Masters in Architecture in order to pursue a career in the field.
