About 

Hi, I'm Jackson! 

I just graduated with a 5-year Bachelor of Architecture degree from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York (Class of 2020). I am passionate about social justice and have a high interest in creating architecture that is not solely about form and aesthetics, but how space encourages social interactions, conversations, and daily routines.

I am also half Puerto Rican and grew up in a home that prioritized hospitality and treating everyone like family. I love to cook, host guests, and I throw great office parties.
