I suppose I could start by stating that I am an aspiring architect. With my IDP and CIDP nearly complete, and currently studying for the AREs during my masters program, I hope to continue my path towards this profession. Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, I have become very familiar with CA codes and territory. However, in the past few years, I have been learning more about the midwest and east coast regions to gain a better understanding of different architectural techniques. I believe in continuing my education at all times in an effort to build upon my own skill set while maintaining the ability to communicate with interdisciplinary groups. In my spare time, I run, rock climb, camp and snowboard.
