I am a young, passionate architectural designer keen on being a part of a productive team that can communicate well. I believe that truly inspiring and impactful work is most often the result of a collaborative process, hence I approach each new project with a sense of flexibility and teamwork. I am self taught and quick to grasp new ideas and concepts, always learning new software and techniques. There are multiple ways to solve any given problem, and I am eager to find the most creatively effective solution to them.
