About 

I have always enjoyed a passion for architecture since I feel that I am a lateral thinker, using both my left side in equivalence to my right. The education I received at Northeastern is very practical, with some of our project work being based on real sites throughout the Boston area. After receiving my Bachelor's degree in architecture, my education at Northeastern University has helped me develop a firm foundation in design. The courses I have completed at Northeastern, along with my extensive studio work and years of experience in the field, have substantially prepared me for my future endeavors.

Education 

Northeastern University, Boston, MA, US, BArch, Architecture

I have always enjoyed a passion for architecture but my education and experience in the field so far has taken my interest to a whole new level. I feel that I am a left and right-brained thinker, a lateral thinker, well rounded and have performed well at my studio critiques at school. The education I received at Northeastern is very practical and with some of our project work being based on real sites throughout the Boston area. Most of the projects involved many different urban situations. Additionally, all of the designs used real world experience since they were zoned on actual sites that we could visit. This allowed for a more urban approach to design while also working within the limits of the city.
