In May 2016, I will graduate with a BS in Architecture from the Catholic University of America in Washington DC. Art and design have always been great interests of mine. This led me to pursue architecture as my career of choice, and continues to drive my desire to learn.

I have strong digital and hand drawing skills. My studies have allowed me to become very proficient in 3DS Max, the Adobe Suite, AutoCAD, Revit, Rhino 3D, and V-ray.

I had the opportunity to study abroad in Rome, Italy for my second semester junior year. While abroad, I was able to experience Europe’s architectural and cultural treasures. This experience greatly broadened my perspective of architecture and design.

While my profile says I live in Michigan, I intend to stay in the Washington DC area after I graduate from CUA.  I have a website at, and a direct link to my ISSUU Portfolio at
