I'm a current architecture student attending Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, class of 2024. I was born in California but moved to Asia as a child. I have spent the majority of my life living in ShenZhen, China, and Bali, Indonesia.

Some of my experiences include working as a stage and set designer for a well-known festival company, GypsyLands. I also worked with PotatoHead, a Balinese hotel company's architecture firm, working in collaboration with OMA.
