I am a recent grad from the undergraduate Landscape Architecture program at Cal Poly Pomona and I am currently seeking employment. My passions with design focus on graphic communication, urban design, and most of all research. In the past, I have worked on an independent PPN research project for ASLA and have work experience from my internship with AHBE Landscape Architects. I have proficient skills with most design programs and continue to learn new programs with the evolution of graphic communication; programs dealing with animation and virtual reality. From my professional and academic experience, I am a persistent, quick, flexible designer that strives to be continuously challenged.
