About 

Hi, I'm Krishnan, and I am a designer currently based in Dallas, Texas. I have a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from The University of Texas at Arlington and an M.Arch I from the University of Texas at Austin, where I graduated in May of 2018. I still feel new to the profession, and I am learning a lot each day. My interests mainly belong to green building, adaptive re-use, parametric design, and graphics/visualization; however, my goal is to become a well rounded Architect in all aspects of the profession. 

I am a quick learner and open-minded yet discerning person. As a US and UK citizen I am also open to travel and working in new locations
