For the past 5 years, I have lived in Melbourne, Australia. In my time there, I completed a Bachelor’s in Architectural Design, an Advanced Diploma in Building Design, and a Certificate in Design at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. Now that I have moved back to New York, it is my goal to put my experiences and acquired knowledge to use in a professional setting. 

Throughout my studies, I have worked on a range of projects that have given me the ability to adapt to new requirements and client briefs. My design process is inclusive in that non architectural precedents, experiences and ideas are equally as valid in the design development. Collaboration plays an essential role in the shaping of these ideas as it provides a dissociated layer of interrogation. The communication inspired by this collaboration strengthens my understanding and spreads unique concepts that lead to a richer outcome. 

The variety of experiences I have had shape my work. As a result, my designs serve as artifacts that recall these moments. It is a memory and a reason, to continue to experience, create and reflect. I look forward to starting my Architectural career here in New York.
