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

I have an uncle who is and architect, who designed a house for my parents. When I got to high school, I was looking for a career path that would combine my love of physics and art. Architecture seemed like a natural fit.

What do you do?

I work closely with the firm’s design principals and fellow studio members to execute a wide variety of architectural projects. I do a little bit of everything, from programming to construction administration and everything in between.

What excites you in the work you do?

I love that no two projects are alike and the multi-faceted nature of the profession. It makes for a challenging yet rewarding experience.
