New Orleans, LA, US



Architecture student at Tulane University pursuing an M.Arch degree, anticipating graduation in May 2016. I am passionate about architecture and the way it shapes our society and environment. I am interested in inter-disciplinary crossover opportunities, specially in the realm of Public Interest Design, as i believe good design is centered around people and improving their daily lives. I am allured by the ways in which this profession can be applied in so many different ways to help those in most need of design. I believe that the collaboration between people of different academic backgrounds is paramount for socially responsible design. I am seeking a full time position in a collaborative environment that emphasizes research of technology, urbanism, and sustainability. When outside the architecture studio, I enjoy photography, traveling, and reading. I am eager to learn more from working and networking with other like minded people and gain some experience.
