About 

I am a designer with a curious mind who pays attention to the details. I seek to create sensorial experiences which evoke emotions from people. I believe design has the ability to make people laugh, to heal, or to make someone's day even just a tiny bit better. The skills I have acquired from a fast-paced learn-as-you-go academic environment combined with my interests in graphics, film/music, and healthcare motivate me to explore and challenge the limits of architecture and design. 

As a soon to be M.Arch graduate, I am currently seeking a full-time entry-level design opportunity. Thanks for taking a moment to learn a little about me!
