Who or what inspires you professionally?

Professionally, I have found an abundance of inspiration through my professors. My studio professors are always looking for what could be better and how I can start to become a better architect. They push me to learn and grow into someone better.

How did you first learn about architecture and when did you decide that built environment profession was an area of interest for you?

Architecture and the ideas of accommodating spaces was first introduced to me in middle school when I had began technical theater and crew. This exposure to set design and construction heavily influenced my draw towards architecture.

What do you do?

I create. If there is something that I want to be brought into the world I am going to make it happen. Everyday I am drawing and creating. Even when I have a rare day off from studio, I am still trying to get my hands on something to create.

What excites you in the work you do?

The idea of impacting someone else's life from the things I create makes me the most excited to continue creating. I love to see people light up when they see my models or drawings. That inspires me to the next level. I want to make an experience.

Who or what inspires you professionally?

Professionally, I have found an abundance of inspiration through my professors. My studio professors are always looking for what could be better and how I can start to become a better architect. They push me to learn and grow into someone better.

What is your proudest professional accomplishment or achievement?

My proudest accomplishment has been my growth as a designer and an architect over this last year. I am very proud of the designs I have created and the work I have put in to push myself to become someone better.
