I'm a thesis student at Syracuse University who is excited to transition into the field of Architecture.  In my thesis I've been investigating obsolescence and future ruins as well as the social responsibility of architects.  I have enjoyed getting involved with the AIAS and the Architecture Student Organization and have worked to bring student design-build projects to downtown Syracuse.  In my spare time I have pursued a minor in marketing management and hope to use this expertise to develop client relations.
