I have completed my studies at Georgia Tech (official graduation date in December 2014) in Architecture and City and Regional Planning, with a focus on Urban Planning Design and Policy. My thesis resulted in a highly detailed benchmarking of resilient urban form and a statistical analysis of urban form, how it pertains to other benchmarking or form-based systems, and how to use the data within the schematic design process.  I have a great interest in all types of architectural, urban form and policy issues as they relate to the way humans move through space on different scales. Lastly, I feel that my focus is to help create a nexus between the legal and administrative regulations that regulate building, the construction and design process, and the building of resilient and sustainable urban form.

While officially graduating in December 2014, I have completed my graduate study requirements at Georgia Tech. My studies focused on both Architecture and City and Regional Planning, with a concentration on Urban Planning and Policy. My dual thesis focused on an analysis of urban form theory, current urban development systems like LEED, Form Codes, Smart Growth, TODs and LA Walkability and the urban form within the world’s most resilient cities. I used GIS to statistical analyze various interactive spatial elements on a large scale and determined their benchmarks and policy implications.
