I am a Bay Area-based designer, with an interest in the intersection between urbanism and sustainable design.

After graduating with a B.A. in Biological Sciences from the University of Chicago, I worked in non-profit volunteer and event coordination for two years, while exploring a newfound passion for architecture sparked by the city of Chicago and the patterns of human life within the city. 

I am currently pursuing an M.Arch at the University of California, Berkeley, where I am particularly interested in affordable and equitable housing, as well as the role of informal architecture in the United States.

When not designing, I can be found avidly studying the chemistry of baking or applying practical knowledge of physics in tennis and volleyball.
