About 

A recent graduate at Syracuse University School of Architecture, Undergraduate Accredited Program.

I have a long-standing passion for making and fabrication which drew me to pursue a career in architecture and design. Over the course of my education, I have had the awesome opportunity to work for amazing, award-winning architecture firms throughout New York City. Each unique experience allowed me to work on various project types from small residential renovations to large masterplans. Through my experiences, I've found my interest in civic and urban design exploring relationships of the city to nature and its local context. I believe that architecture is a tool for story-telling and has total responsibility to its local community acknowledging both environmental and social issues.
