I am a recent graduate from Stanford University. I earned my B.S. in Engineering with a focus in Architectural Design. I also completed extended course work in Urban Studies.

I am currently looking for work in the Architecture industry. With three internships at home and abroad, I have professional experience in the architecture and planning fields. I look forward to continuing work in architecture in order to achieve my career goals of becoming a licensed architect and contributing to the fascinating field of architect in any way I can.
