Los Angeles, CA, US



Born in the San Francisco Bay Area, I have always felt loyal to my hometown, Fremont. However, when I started college, I found myself in southern California. It was almost as though I am living in two completely different worlds, even though they are hardly far from each other. I appreciate my upbringing, but I love being in the Greater Los Angeles area.

I graduated from Cal Poly Pomona with a B. Arch degree, and I look forward to what the world outside school has to offer.

Cal Poly Pomona (Nicole)

Initially, I was going to name this blog "Architecture Will Kill You", but I thought better of it.

Welcome to my five-year journey in undergraduate architecture school.
