I bring my passions together through architecture. I am interested in art, education and how people interact with one another. To me, architecture is art that has come to life, where people can gather, communicate, and learn from each other. I enjoy analyzing the complexity of the built environment and how people utilize it. I love to learn and with a career in architecture, I know that learning never ends. With each project there is the opportunity to learn something new, whether it is about a client, the specific environment of a project, the program of a building, or advancements in structural capabilities.

I graduated from the University of Oregon with a Bachelor of Architecture degree. While studying in Oregon, I also completed two minors: Planning, Public Policy and Analysis and Art History. I have work experience in New Jersey, California, Shanghai, China, and Kathmandu, Nepal.
