About

A Bay Area native transplanted to Seattle, I moved up here to pursue a passion in sustainable design. I graduated from the University of California at Berkeley in 2015 where I received simultaneous Bachelors of Arts degrees in Architecture and French alongside a minor in Sustainable Design. I have become inspired by the rise in environmentally conscious architecture throughout both the Bay Area and Seattle regions and am working to contribute to that energy.
