I'm a Metro Detroit graduate student at Lawrence Technological University with a Bachelor of Science in Architecture and pursuing a Master of Architecture degree. I currently work as an urbanism research assistant and enjoy leading the college’s AIAS and NOMAS chapters. Let's chat about architecture, 3D printing, drone scanning, VR, computational design, BIM, design theory, graphic design and more!
