As a beginner in the field, I am looking to broaden my knowledge of architecture and design within the parameters of our everyday life. I grew up in New Mexico and was strongly connected with my upbringing- constantly inspired by the complex natural landscape surrounding me. I was able to channel my creative instincts at the University of New Mexico, graduating with my BAA in Architecture with a concentration in Design Studies. I spent the following year working in a firm where I gained incredible insight into how the design process begins and ends and quickly learned how to utilize my skills in the workplace. I have relocated to Los Angeles and am eager to continue growing in the field and challenge myself with new ideas, concepts, and technologies.
