About Me

Hello everyone. I very excited to be in the program and look forward to meeting you all. I’m originally from Maryland but currently reside in New York City. I graduated from Towson University with a bachelors of science in urban studies. I also hold a masters in architecture from Parsons School of Design.

What about the residency are you most looking forward to?

What I look forward to in this program is spending time in the classroom and really learning from both the teachers and students I'll be working with. I'm someone who loves to learn and equally loves to be a part of the learning process.

Did you have a teacher who made a lasting impression on you?

My professor and former boss, Michael Gardner. I felt like I was able to be honest with him as a student about the goals that I wanted to accomplish in life and what I wanted to do after graduation. He was able to give me the tools and resources to different avenues of which I could pursue and hopefully achieve the things I wanted for my own future.
