I am a CalPoly graduate with a Bachelor of Architecture Degree.  My first experience with architecture was when I first stepped foot in San Francisco as a child with my family and looking upward as the buildings around me framed the sky.  Since then, I've been happily engaging with architecture and it's many facets.

When I'm not learning about design, I am practicing yoga, adventuring in the great city of San Francisco, writing poetry and/or going on a hike.

A collaborative effort was made to design a low income housing complex in the vintage Autorow area of Oakland, California. I learned many skills and greatly enjoyed working on this project!


The CalPoly Design Village - Sustain-a-Build Competition- Best Craftsmanship Award, Award

This was a design build competition. My team and I designed a portable hut made of bamboo and recycled cardboard. I enjoyed this opportunity the most because I was able to help design and build something to its full and glorious completion. We carried the pieces of our design to the top of Poly Canyon and put it together on the hillside. We then stayed inside our hut for the next three nights as was part of the Design Village guidelines.
