I recently graduated from UC Berkeley Summa Cum Laude with my Master’s in Architecture, and hold a Bachelor’s in Arts & Architecture from UNC Charlotte.

Professionally, I worked at three architecture firms where I gained experience in all phases of project delivery including design proposals, code review, project rendering, site master planning, building plans, elevations, wall sections/ details, and zoning. I have met individually with clients to present project proposals as well as meeting throughout the design process. Additionally, I have worked and coordinated personally with PM&E firms, local government planners, contractors, and product consultants through the process of a project design. The projects I have worked on vary in program including industrial, multi-family/single-family housing, commercial, and educational.

I bring strong attention to detail and a great dedication to craft. I am proficient in a range of both analog skills and digital programs. The diversity of my educational and professional experience highlights my ability to be adaptive, receptive and eager to learn. I am highly motivated and energetic, continentality excited about new projects and new ideas.

My interests in design center on creating socially equitable and environmentally sustainable spaces and places.



University of California, Berkeley, Berkeley, CA, US, Graduate Student Instructor

The class taught was the first architecture studio for undergraduates which focused on fundamental design principals, analog and digital representation skills, and software skills. I taught and managed a twelve student section within the studio where I led studio pin-ups, desk critiques, and reading discussions during the duration of the class. I also created and delivered software tutorials for lectures. While teaching I focused on creating a healthy and collaborative studio environment.
