Los Angeles, CA, US



I grew up on a lake in the idyllic setting of the northwest, where I have gained a love for the outdoors and the architecture that melds so seamlessly into the surrounding landscape. I developed a passion for architecture over the last several years and have pursued the career with vigor ever since I discovered my calling. With my work ethic and intuitive grasp of design, along with my well developed understanding of software and the articulation of space in the digital realm, I believe I could become a valuable asset to the profession. I’m an innovative thinker and a passionate architecture student with a highly developed work ethic and sense of commitment. I’m honored to be studying at USC to earn my masters degree in architecture, yet I would love to broaden my scope of knowledge by extending my skills to the profession.
