I am a versatile and talented designer with a very strong  digital tool-set. I am capable of excelling in a variety of working conditions and am committed to accuracy, diligence and timeliness. 

I have extensive experience in coordinating a project's technical systems as well as assembling a document set throughout the various stages of development. My aptitude with computer software is one of my strongest assets and I continue to expand my range of skills and proficiency in a variety of programs so as to stay competitive in a challenging and evolving work environment.

My previous experience has provided me with valuable insight into the various stages of project development and design. As a result, I feel confident in my ability to successfully approach, engage and resolve design or coordination problems in a professional and timely fashion. 

My personable and professional attitude has afforded me the ability to comfortably navigate various client and consultant interactions in a meaningful and productive manner. The versatility provided by my diverse professional and personal experience has made me a more flexible and capable Architect.

AIAS Forum Design Competition, 2nd Place

Each year at the Annual Design Conference Forum, AIAS hosts a design competition for interested students and teams. This particular year's competition had teams visit a nearby local site which was intended for future development. A total of 100+ people participated which were broken down into teams of 2-3 people each.

Teams were tasked with designing a local market where nearby residents could have easy and immediate access to fresher, more sustainable foods. Our team's approach focused on providing adaptive and responsive modular installations and food stands which could be moved and changed for the appropriate season and vendor goods.


d3 Housing of Tomorrow Competition, Honorable Mention

The d3 Competition is a well-known annual competition focused on envisioning housing models for the future in a variety of spaces and manners. There are numerous 'categories' which teams or firms can choose to focus on; my team decided to approach the High-Density Housing category due to our shared interest in problems with adequate housing in developing areas of the world.

Our project focused on devising a new model of housing for residents of Dharavi, one of the world's largest slums located in the heart of Mumbai, India. We choose to make water collection, distribution and conservation a primary driver of our design since we believed it to be one of the most basic collectively-binding properties of the region.
