I'm a designer and Master of Architecture graduate interested in architecture, set design, interiors, and video games. I love ephemeral, interactive, and community-focused spaces. My experiences with architectural visualization and real-time rendering have made me fascinated by the possibilities of virtual environments. I believe in a more playful ethos for all spaces, both physical and virtual.
