About 

Originally from Pittsburgh, I'm a recent graduate of Carnegie Mellon University with a Bachelor of Architecture. It is my passion of learning and making that fuels my aspiration to become an architect. 

My experience at CMU has offered me an opportunity to observe more critically about the world through technology, materials, and place. I am a big proponent of architecture as well as design, photography, wood working, novel experiences, and traveling.
