Throughout my academic journey at K-State, I have honed my critical thinking skills, enabling me to tackle complex design challenges with confidence. The comprehensive 5-year courses offered me valuable insights into the utilization of various tools and theories integral to the design process. Additionally, my immersive one-year stint at Steinberg Hart enriched my knowledge with practical industry experience and exposure to cutting-edge technologies. By blending advanced digital tools with traditional craftsmanship in my projects, I strive to achieve imaginative and sustainable outcomes that resonate within their unique contexts.

For me, architecture embodies both an art and a science, an avenue to cultivate new ideas and a better world. It compels designers to adopt an inclusive mindset, attentively listening to and understanding diverse user needs. Every building has a compelling story worth telling, extending beyond bricks and steel frames. As I venture forward, my portfolio exemplifies a commitment to innovative and sustainable design, guided by the belief that architecture can leave a lasting impact on individuals and communities alike.
