About 

Recent gradate of Syracuse University’s Bachelor of Architecture program

I am a competent problem solver with a very creative and inventive spirit, a fast learner, and am eager to gain new skills and further advance those I have already acquired.  I have a passion for sustainable, eco-friendly, and health-oriented design, and look forward to creating learning environments that offer different solutions to potentially benefit a eco-friendly design approach.  I have strong cooperative skills, yet my resourcefulness and organizational abilities allow me to step into leadership roles when appropriate.
