Antioch, CA, US



I graduated from Arizona State University where I develop a deeper understanding of design and the environment around me. I realized everything from the creation of a pamphlet to a mega structure has infinite processes and ways to be conceived. After finishing school, I worked in a couple of architectural firms which helped me gain some experience in the steps required to begin, develop, and complete a project.  Every assignment teaches me something new and exciting and that´s what I enjoy the most because I like to absorb everything from them.
