Queens, NY, USA
I am a fifth year Architecture major graduating in June from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo with a B. Arch professional degree. Throughout my education I have become increasingly interested in the impact of the computer on architecture, especially the use of scripting and parametric processes to generate form. I look forward to working for a firm where I can learn and be challenged, and one where I can broaden my understanding of the discipline.
