Savannah, GA, US



I am a french / brazilian undergraduate student from the BSMP (Brazil Scientific Mobility Program) currently studying architecture at the Savannah College of Art and Design, SCAD, in Savannah, GA.

As an architect, the mission is to provide a physical interpretation of an eco-friendly architecture that is as attractive as it is comfortable. Connecting people and minimizing negative impacts on the built environment in a necessity for quality of life. Social and environmental responsibilities are intrinsic to the planet and are always reflected in the best projects. Teamwork comes naturally. I bring to the table a natural ability to inspire group success.

I'm a highly motivated undergraduate leaning towards historic preservation, in addition to sustainable living and permaculture design. Excellent exposure to the dynamic architectural field and the various strategies for green building including bioclimatic comfort, zero waste efforts, low cost construction and maintenance.

Able to use own initiative and work as part of a team under pressure to meet challenging deadlines/objectives. Outstanding communication and organizational skills with the will and determination needed to succeed.
