Raised in New Haven, CT, I gained a unique perspective, caught between poverty and the social nature of a beautiful city. From a young age, I was involved in neighborhood beautification in the Dwight neighborhood, and was able to understand the impact of the built environment on the social fabric of the city.
Having gone to Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston, MA, I have had the fortune to be involved in hands-on experience through cooperative education at Beacon Architectural Associates and Elkus Manfredi Architects as well as a community design project with the YMCA. I have had the opportunity to lead teams, work in two different professional settings, apply research to fabrication, and have designs realized.
I have studied abroad in Berlin, which gave me the opportunity to expand my perspective of the world. It also focused me to find out more about the principles which I hold dear as well as develop a discipline in understanding the process of building, and its role in the city. In the Master of Architecture program at WIT, I traveled to Shanghai in conjunction with a three month studio which dealt with the ideas of gentrification, historical preservation, cultural identity, and globalization.

I'm deeply interested in social issues, and how design can be utilized as a means to the good of the public. Public interest design, design as activism, and projects with an urban context are where my heart is. I also thirst to learn about technology and its application to architecture, and the role that making has in the field. I have some experience in digital fabrication including laser cutting and CNC milling, as well as parametric modeling. I am looking to get my hands dirty, and become an integral part of a team which seeks to make the world a better place through design. Read Less
