University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, US, MArch, Masters of Architecture

I am continuing my architectural education by pursuing my M.Arch at PennDesign. It is great seeing the work of the Landscape, City Planning, Fine Arts, and Historic Preservation programs. And of course the work of my colleagues in the M.Arch program. I have grown as a designer a tremendous amount; my eye and mind are open to the unconventional.

University at Buffalo, Buffalo, NY, US, BArch, Architecture

While I attended SUNY Buffalo's undergraduate architecture program I gained a well rounded design education. It ranged from conceptual spatial arrangement studies to a comprehensive code compliant residential mixed-use building. I am thankful for the high value of education I received from The School of Architecture and Planning at UB.
