In developing as an individual at Pratt Institute, traveling the world, and now as a design professional having worked and lived in NYC & LA, I am interested in how a design can be integrated into the site, the human body, and the mind. It is highly intriguing to me when interdisciplinary studies can influence architectural design, especially through sustainable practices. I look forward to the architectural boundaries that can be broken in the future of my career endeavors.

I am currently open for a full time position as an Architectural Job Captain in the New York City area.
