My current professional objective is to obtain a full-time opportunity at an architecture firm, in order to deepen design capabilities, gain experience in the field, and build professional relationships with other designers.
My personal design objective is to continue exploring the way good design can express, amplify, and facilitate healthy human lives and relationships, and to continually grow in my ability to design in this way.
