Hi, my name is Jacob Gulezian I'm a 2+4 architecture student in my fourth studio year at Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA. Originally, I'm from the D.C. area where I graduated from Washington International School with an International Baccalaureate Bilingual Diploma in 2011. I hold an intense interest in architecture and design, but I also indulge in books, music, sports and language.

I am enthusiastic and welcoming to any design challenge and enjoy the opportunities and constraints that come with every stage of the design process. But, for me, the most exciting aspect of design is the evolution of a project, from the seed of an idea, into the blooming creation of the final product. I have always strived to be proud of every one of my projects, but I always keep looking forward, convinced that my next will be my best. I am an independent and critical thinker, and I am not afraid to speak my mind, yet I am keen to learn and to maintain an open mind towards new ideas and points of view from others.
