I am currently a M.Arch student at Penn State University. My work and interests are characterized by an advanced and a practical knowledge of computerized techniques. My specialties include digital fabrication, parametric modeling, and robotics. These skills have supplemented my projects to have highly technological attributes, all of which are well thought-out in detail.

Makers in Residence Fellowship, Scholarship

This fellowship is given to students who have demonstrated a strong ability for physical making, usually in a particular area or technique of fabrication. The Fellows coordinate and host a short series of creative workshops in the Bernard M. Gordon Learning Factory at Penn State. I chose to make my workshops about lighting design, and taught techniques of building lamps, wiring, and programming LED lights.
