New York, NY, US



In May 2012, I completed the Bachelor of Architecture program at Philadelphia University. Over my course of study, I identified that my interests with architecture specifically questioned the impact of architecture on the urban as well as the reverse. In tandem with my undergraduate education, I also was very involved with community service initiatives. 

Currently, I attend the MS Design and Urban Ecologies graduate program at Parsons the New School for Design in New York City. Given my previous architectural experience, my current education deepens my knowledge and sensitivity for social justice in the urban sphere, locally and globally as well as spatially, politically, and economically. My focus is to pair this knowledge with architectural practice to better serve people.
