I am a 2020 graduate of Yale University with a BA in architecture with a concentration in design. I frequently go by my nickname - "Cole" - and recently earned my LEED Green Associate credential. Within my studies and personal pursuits, I am particularly interested in novel concepts in exhibit design, urban studies, 3D modelling, and the intersections of art and architecture. I am especially passionate about creating spaces that can evoke emotions and experiences within the occupants.
