My name is Denzel Ebalo Villanueva and I graduated from the University of San Francisco's 2020 Architecture + Community Design class. 

I love architecture for the many different practices it is a part of: aesthetics/design, community outreach, and as well as cultural traditions. My main goal as an architect is to use my knowledge to assist lower-income communities in providing the facilities that they need the most. As well as working with a firm that pursues the best needs for their clients' goals and identities, I am very open to non-profit work and have been taking part in it since graduating college.

Some of my interests are skateboarding, drawing, and playing guitar.
