New York, NY, US



I'm a recent San Francisco transplant in New York City, whom like many others, came to pursue her American dream. After an architectural trip many years ago, I fell in love with this city's vibrant energy and the sky-reaching forms surrounding it. 

I’m interested in enhancing the human interaction, light experiences, and sustainable experimental possibilities within each space and form. My work often integrates parametric, rapid prototyping techniques, through the use of Grasshopper (Rhino plug-in), in form-making. I'm also very passionate about Graphic Design and Fashion design, taking several outside courses during my BArch. 

My experience includes a Bachelor of Architecture from California College of the Arts, 2016, and several short construction internships. After arriving to New York earlier this year, I began my career as a Graphic Designer, Furniture/Sculpture Designer at a small art company; Novo Arts. In this position, I'm learning a skill set to become better designer.
