Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), Providence, BArch, Arcitecture

Although trained as an architect, while at RISD I was able to expose myself to a variety of disciplines such as interior design, graphic design, industrial design, film, and some digital media. This allowed me to broaden my comprehension of what it is to be a designer and compliment my architectural studies. Acquiring these different design skills has allowed me to apply the different mediums into my work as an architect.
