About 

As a current 4th year student at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, I found that I have gravitated towards the visual representation and the social qualities of architecture. I am always trying to find the best way to visualize an idea, whether it is better diagrammatic techniques, dramatic imagery to even the ever growing virtual reality realm. I am also interested in how architecture can have an impact on society and can change the way people experience a “space."

 I have an extensive knowledge of multiple design software and am always trying to be the forefront of technology and what is new in architecture. I am a firm believer in collaboration and think that the best work is produced when there are multiple inputs involved, but I also possess the ability to take an authoritative role when the opportunity arises. My communication skills are impeccable and I am able to express my ideas and opinions while also listening to the ideas of others. As you may know I am a member of Prep for Prep, an organization which is the nation’s foremost program for academically gifted minority students.

Awards 

Browns Fellowship Award, Grant

This travel program was established in 1988 by Mrs. Helen C. Brown in loving memory of her son, Robert S. Brown ʼ52, a 1952 graduate of Rensselaerʼs School of Architecture. The fund is intended to expand the educational opportunities and broaden the cultural base available to Rensselaerʼs architecture students and/or faculty. The program provides travel fellowships to Rensselaer School of Architecture students and faculty.
Goal of the Student Fellowship: The intent of the Brown Fellows Program is to provide a unique opportunity for students within the Rensselaer architecture program to consider architecture as an international discipline with global reach. Through the generous support of our alum Robert S. Brown, students will be able to experience in person the brilliant legacy and traditions of historical and contemporary architecture from around the world that is integral to a proposed research investigation that supports an academic and career trajectory. Offered as a compliment to their education here in the US, this unique travelling fellowship is also intended to provide a multi-cultural experience, in preparation for assuming a leadership position within the discipline in the years ahead
