I am discovering better actions to engage a more thoughtful approach to art and design. I'm an architectural designer seeking opportunities in the U.S. in or near larger metropolitan areas. Although specializing in architecture, I enjoy all aspects of digital media, content creation, photography, and videography. These creative outlets help me discover my “why.” 

I enjoy a dynamic and collaborative environment that focuses on human-centered design. Design should be used to elevate the human experience in all regards. 

My long-term goal is to utilize my passions along with smart investments to create socio-economic impact, at any capacity, in communities.

Reach out to me on LinkedIn or email! I’d love to chat and explore opportunities.
