MASTER OF ARCHITECTURE (2006)
I have always sought to develop and incorporate a unique style and approach in my projects, often exploring paths less traveled. Within a constricted framework of time, I have gained experience and knowledge while working on various stages of design process- presentation drawings, design detailing, construction drawings, construction administration and interior design.
