Brooklyn, NY, US



I am a recent Master of Architecture graduate from the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, IL.

With a background in urban planning, I have a strong interest in civic architecture, the design of urban public space, and socially responsible design.

I see architecture as a means to explore the concurrences of culture, politics, ecology, and urbanism and I am interested in architecture’s capacity to act as a commentary on society. I also have an appreciation for the act of building and I believe that successful design confides in refined craft and detail to gild our surroundings.
