About 

I am a Canadian born, globally minded architectural designer and recent graduate of The University of Southern California. I graduated with commendation, receiving the highest awarded grade for my final thesis studio, apart of USC's 5-year professionally accredited architecture program. Additionally, I graduated Cum Laude, with B. Arch and a Real Estate Development minor from the USC Price School of Public Policy. Since graduating, I've seen my most recent work, Chrysalis, published in print for an exposé in Risk Magazine titled "Precious Armor". Having just returned from summer travels exploring the UK, Malta, Lebanon and Greece, I look forward to embarking on my professional journey this fall. With a longstanding love, admiration, and fascination of hotels, I plan on focusing my creative efforts in field of hospitality design.
