Los Angeles, CA, US



I am a designer and aspiring architect with experience in a variety of fields of architecture. My work ranges in various sizes of scale and also from the abstract to the engineered and feasible projects. Representation of these projects consists of pen and pencil sketches, paintings and collages, photography of architecture and models, physical models, 3D work and renderings and various writings as well.  My work centers on my education while obtaining my Bachelors of Architecture degree, completed at Southern California Institute of Architecture from 2008 to 2013 where my final thesis, Take the Edge off, was selected for SCI-Arc's 40th Anniversary Exhibition in 2013.
