About 

Architecture is a profession where there is liberation and an undeniable satisfaction when your design plays a role to enhance the community. Contributing to projects that meld awe-inspiring design with economic and civic benefits is the ultimate career satisfaction.

I am, currently, a 5th year student completing my Bachelor’s degree in Architecture at New York Institute of Technology. My current thesis proposal is to design a medical facility within Union Point; LStar Ventures’ on-going Smart City project in South Weymouth, Massachusetts. My proposal is not only to provide a healthcare center for the new city, but to also create a space that is both flexible and adaptable for patients, physicians, & the surrounding community.

In addition to attending school, I also intern at Rosenbaum Design Group. RDG is a full-service design firm providing clients site planning, concept development, architectural, structural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection engineering as well as in-house municipal expediting services. I have had the amazing opportunity to work closely on many of the firm’s multi-scale commercial and institutional projects over the past 3 years. As a result of these experiences, I have garnered skills necessary in both field & office work from site surveying to preparing architectural documents, ensuring alignment with design intent and firm standards.
