I am currently a 2+4 Architecture Student at Drexel University going into my junior year.  I grew up in New York and continuously visit and stay with family throughout my breaks from school. The relationship between both cities, Philadelphia and New York, has played an important role in both my academic and creative careers. I've been able to experience multiple dynamics of both architecture and peoples.

Throughout my studies I've had a strong focus on experimenting through different media of representation and expression such as photography, film, painting, music, drawing, fashion design, dance, and what ever strikes me in the moment. In practice ,architecture is the embodiment of a time, space, emotion, and purpose and a result of the accumulation of experience in these other media. In connecting with others, I aim to acquire new lenses through which I can look at the world of architecture as well as share the lens through which I view the world.
