Summary

Trained in architecture, building technology, and computer visualizations, I have gone beyond to explore the realm of all types of spaces (real, virtual, and everything in between) with an emphasis on user experience and interactivity. I aim to learn as much as I can everyday, and my current studies in game development at SCAD are paving the way for new adventures.
