About 

I hold a Master of Architecture from Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc). I have over 6 years of professional experience in schematic design, design development and construction documents ranging from residential homes to large commercial buildings including public transportation facilities. I’m proficient in Maya, Rhino, AutoCAD and  physical model making. All which has allowed me to receive scholarships throughout my studies. With a Psychology Bachelor's degree and an Architecture Master's degree, I have strong communication skills, I’m able to assist in a collaborative environment to provide solutions to projects of varying complexity.

Education 

Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc), Los Angeles, CA, US, MArch, Master of Architecture

SCI-Arc’s M.Arch 1 is a three-year, seven-term, professional Master of Architecture program. Each semester’s design studio is integrally linked with courses in visual, cultural, and applied studies, giving insights into the relationship between architecture and technological advances, representation, and social change. With each progressive semester, students become more sophisticated in addressing complex architectural issues while testing their own intellectual and design convictions.
Upon completion of the core sequence, students are invited to choose from a variety of advanced studios and seminars in which they investigate the latest innovations in technology, advance new approaches to design analysis, and innovate through applied research. The program puts a particular emphasis on the production of architecture, and the ways in which making produces a unique intelligence in the field.
