I am currently searching for work in my hometown of Toronto after living, studying and working in the Netherlands for 4 years. I completed my Architectural Bachelor's at Ryerson University and my Masters at TU Delft.

In my studies and career I have focused on sustainable and affordable developments around the world. I am passionate about community livability and urban agriculture and indulge in this interest with Design + Build + Grow Design Studio founded with like-minded classmates in 2013.

I keep busy with many artistic hobbies including a variety of dance styles, and material arts such as ceramics and embroidery and jewelry design.
