I am currently enrolled in the Master of Architecture I program at City College of New York. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from New York University, years of work experience ranging from environmental activism, administrative and retail support, to production of professional juggling and performance arts equipment.

In addition to the built environment and urban landscape, I am also passionately interested in food politics, sustainable agricultural practices, and the study of history and culture through food.
