About 

I am a recent graduate of Cal Poly Pomona, where I received my B. Arch with a minor in Regenerative Studies. My studies at the polytechnic heavily focused on both the theoretical and practical aspects of architectural design, producing projects that experimented with form and program while still focusing on details and functionality. Furthermore, my 4th year was spent in Florence, Italy where my education was impacted by the rich historical context of the city and by my travels throughout Europe.

Throughout my education I have worked on projects of various scales and programs, ranging from housing to galleries to industrial facilities with each focusing on the exploration and detailed development of a strong concept. Various 3-D modeling and drafting programs were learned, including Revit, Rhino, Sketchup, and AutoCAD. My professional experience includes working on high-end residential and hospitality projects from pre-design through construction documentation. Multiple projects were simultaneously worked on in a fast-paced, team-oriented environment and completed primarily with AutoCAD and Revit.
