Employment 

Mark Foster Gage Architects, New York, NY, US, Architectrue Intern

I worked on the Geothermal Futures Lab exhibit for Sci-Arc gallery in Los Angeles. I was in charge of handling the installation, producing construction drawings and creating animations. I’ve also aided in the design of a residential project in the UK which comprised of building site context research as well as the development facade design iterations. My academic studies have allowed me to become confident in multiple software packages such as Rhinoceros, Grasshopper, Autocad, Maya, Zbrush, and Adobe Creative Suite. Working under Mark Foster Gage significantly expanded my architectural horizons and enhanced my understanding of architectural theory. Especially as it pertains to Object-Oriented Ontology as the design foundation. I believe my time at MFGA a big leap in not only my design skills but also the fast-paced working environment.
