B.S. in Architecture, Minor in Photography (2020)
I'm interested in the educational pedagogy for architecture and how the discipline seeks to bridge gaps between academia and practice. What avenues that architecture can fulfill in the future detached from a 100% anthropocentric view, and how this can allow us to address inequities in historic development. I hope to participate in community driven design processes that allow the marginalized and under-heard access to innovative and thoughtful design, i.e. those who need it most and receive it least. It goes without saying, but I'm also extremely interested in critical theory.

I am currently:
