About 

As a graduate of a design school, I have experience in the use of various mediums for effectively communicating the conceptual, technical, and analytical processes of design, architectural and otherwise. I adapt to an ever changing environment and acquire new skills quickly, especially in the context of working in a studio environment both as part of a large collective as well as individually.
