LSU Venture Challenge Competition - 2nd Place, 2nd Place

We prepared and pitched our business concept to a panel of judges (competition similar to Shark Tank), in hopes of winning capital to put towards our business. We received the 2nd place and Audience Choice award, allowing us to purchase our own laser cutter and open an office.


Product Design Award, Award

Received the Product Design Award at the Washington Alexandria Architecture Center for my lighting design project: "The Hubble". The Hubble light uses two common architectural materials in a non-conventional way. The hollow hemisphere distributes even light while having two different standing positions on bent rebar limbs. This satellite-inspired floor light has a raw, industrial exterior opposed to its radiant gold-leaf interior.
