  I have always found inspiration in the world around me and have expressed myself in many different mediums. Finding my passions in the artificiality of Art and in its opposite the natural world, I have always felt that the two should be merged together in order to create stunning experiences. My esthetic strives to accomplish the balance and interaction between the built environment and natural word.

  Moving  from my home town to Los Angeles, I wanted to deepen my pursuit of higher educational goals that would further my passion for architecture. I found this in the Architecture/Landscape/ Interiors program at OTIS College of Art and Design.  I was able to explore tree different types aspects of the built environment, and product design. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in 2015 and have been working within the industry.
