San Francisco, CA, US



Hello! I’m an aspiring architect with experience in healthcare, hospitality and residential design, creating projects that are responsive to the site, the environment, and the community. I contribute to all phases of design, from concept development to construction documentation, using Revit, Rhino 3D, and other software tools.

I have a M.Arch from UCLA, where I also completed a Graduate Certificate in Urban Humanities, exploring the intersections of architecture, urbanism, and culture. My academic projects focused on contextual design, incorporating social, historical, and ecological aspects into the design process. I also have a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering, giving me a solid foundation in structural and environmental engineering. I am passionate about creating spaces that are sustainable, inclusive, and meaningful.
