About 

I seek an entry level position in the field of architecture and design. I am a twenty-two year old recent graduate of The Catholic University of America. I have six months of professional experience post graduation and two prior internships in architectural settings.

I am also an experienced journalist, having held voluntary positions as an architecture critic for publications in Washington D.C.

As an educator, I have taught architecture studios for prospective students and sat on second year/ fourth year final reviews at The Catholic University of America.

Working simultaneously as a designer, writer, and educator has become an integral part of my own design process.

Elsewhere:

Employment 

Street Sense DC, Washington DC, Architecture Critic (Volunteer)

Journalist position that requires investigation into projects occurring in Washington DC, including the 11th Street Bridge Project by OMA.

This specific publication focuses on raising awareness of poverty and homelessness. Therefore, it is necessary to approach stories by observing how specific projects will impact citizens directly rather than commenting on aesthetics or innovation.
