I am a recent graduate from the University at Buffalo with a Master of Architecture. During my time at UB, I was part of the Situated Technology research group. The research group I was dedicated engage in design experimentation that repositions architecture in an expanded field. Complex assemblages of code, people, space, material, infrastructure, practices, processes. I am also confident at handling various design softwares including Sketchup, Rhinoceros, Grasshopper, Revit, Autocad, and the Adobe suites. 

I am a self-motivated and energetic person who are willing to take on challenges.  work as a team with a mix of people from the architecture and urban planning department so I am very comfortable working in groups. I am also a flexible person and are able to handle multi-tasking individually. Whether it is a render, schematic sketches, or 3D modeling, I will use my best ability to produce quality work. I am also a patient person when it comes to revisions. It is an important process in every project.
