About 

     In May of 2013, I culminated my academic career with a Masters of Architecture II Post-Professional degree from the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Design. A one-year intensive design-based program specializing in 3D generative software and Digital Fabrication Methods, focused on exploring contemporary innovation in the field of architecture. For my undergraduate study, I enrolled at Woodbury University where I developed a strong technical foundation in design. Upon completion of their five-year program I received a Bachelors of Architecture degree and a minor in Graphic Design.

     I am an extremely hardworking individual with multiple talents; I can work through all phases of a project. Furthermore, I accept the time and dedication that is required to complete a successful project in this industry. I never shy away from a difficult task and I am eager to prove my worth as a valuable asset.
