Los Angeles, CA, US



I am a recent graduate of SCI-Arc's MArch1 program and am currently seeking work as an architect or designer. I have a wide range of skills and interests in both of these areas, as well as 6 years of work experience. I am interested in design, culture, technology, and the discourse of architecture and how I can contribute to their continued evolution
