I’ve recently received a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and currently doing an internship with B & B Sheet Metal. My architectural education has consisted of a broad range of design studios and other courses in the fields of structures, computing + parametrics, architectural theory, and ecology. Besides architecture, I have strong interest in urban design, and landscape design which I hope to incorporate further into my design capacities in the future.
