I recently graduated from the University of Southern California with a Bachelor of Architecture degree. My main interests are in questioning and challenging the conventional ideas of architecture in the advent of the digital revolution. Ideas such as, perceptual reality, spatial impermanence, ephemeral & ethereal spaces, experiential architecture, are of particular interest to me. I am also looking for full time employment opportunities after my graduation in May 2013.
