I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. Growing up in NYC, I was always immersed in different cultures and constantly observed the changing world around me. As I grew older I found myself interested in the surrounding buildings, cultures and nature and how they come together. This has fueled my interest in how architecture shapes us and vice-versa.

I graduated in May of 2018 from Carnegie Mellon University with an accredited Bachelor’s degree in Architecture and a minor in Chinese Language and Culture. I have a strong interest in residential design and working with passivehaus and net zero design standards. While attending CMU, I took a few environmental/net zero energy graduate level courses as a way of further exploring these topics.

My minor in Chinese has helped me open up mentally and broaden my understanding of the world around me. Learning new languages has always been an interest of mine and through learning a language, your perception of the world changes. I have discovered words and emotions that don’t exist in the other languages I know as well as how certain traits and colors can have a certain perception in one society, but a completely different one in another. As I grow
in the field of architecture, I would like to continue to explore and learn from different cultures while helping to shape my own. Continuing to push for a more integrated society where buildings and systems are better integrated to create a more sustainable and healthy living environment for both the world and occupants.
