About 

I hold my Master’s in Architecture from Texas Tech University with a certificate specializing in Urban and Community design. I came up volunteering, learning, and working for local museums and grassroots organizations.

Through my career as an architecture student I grew an interest in city growth, city edges, and urbanism.

With my education and work I seek to improve living conditions of marginalized communities across cities.
