About 

I am a recent graduate in Architecture from New York Institute of Technology with significant relevant academic and work experience. Moreover, I am highly dedicated, ambitious and creative with my working process. Every time I am given a project, my ultimate goal is to bring different design approaches and please the clients. For instance, I led a group of six students as a project manager to build an urban art project for Harlem community. With the assistance of the residents of Harlem and design intents from the team, we built an interactive design with programs such as vertical garden, and art showcase. The Harlem community appreciated the design intent, and the team is expanding this prototype to various locations from park fences to bus stops. While I have enjoyed my previous work, it was public design. It's a dream of mine to work on different design projects, and with my varied and diversified skills and abilities in leadership and design, I can be an excellent addition to your team.

Education 

New York Institute of Technology (NYIT), New York, NY, US, BArch, Architecture

My studies varied from studio projects, to real life built projects, to furniture designs. There was focus on appreciation of history, culture, and the art and science of buildings, and implementations of history in studio design. Focus on structures, environmental systems, sustainability, and building construction was emphasized during design phases. Coming together, the school equally focused on competitions for theoretical and research design in the last year of architecture school, also called Thesis Research.
