About 

I previously held internships at Selldorf Architects, Fr-ee / Fernando Romero Enterprise and CDH Partners where I produced 3D models, final renderings, construction documents and physical models for competitions and built projects. Most recently I interned at the CEMEX Research Group AG in Switzerland, where I explored the possibility of full-scale architectural elements integrated with high performance concrete, contemporary design and unique fabrication to address climatic challenges. The combination of these experiences helped cultivate my strong passion for architecture and ambition to create unique design innovations that respond to contextual challenges while embracing local culture, which impact the architecture discourse.
