About 

I was born (b. 1990) and raised on the island of Trinidad in the West Indies before migrating (c. 2003) and spending my teenage years in Georgia. I did my undergraduate degree in Atlanta, and also spent some time in Glasgow, Scotland. These experiences have cultivated a fascination with architecture embedded in rich social context and material ecology. My interests currently lie at the intersection of architecture as it relates to ever-changing ideas of urbanity.
