As an architectural designer, I employ various methods of  rigorous design research and schematic development to effectively communicate the conceptual and analytical processes of architectural design. My work experience has given me opportunities to work on both small and large residential and commercial projects.
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.
