Greetings and welcome to my profile! I am a seasoned design professional who recently concluded an enriching chapter at Laney LA, where I dedicated 7 years, progressing from a Designer to a Project Manager and ultimately a Senior Associate. With a Master's Degree in Architecture from the University of Southern California and a Bachelor's in Landscape Architecture from Arizona State University, I've cultivated a multifaceted approach to design. I've recently embarked on an exciting new journey at Olson Kundig, a renowned architecture firm, where I am eager to bring my diverse expertise to innovative projects. Let's connect and explore the exciting possibilities in the world of architecture and design.
