Experience \\ Strengths \\ Design Ideology
I am currently completing a research grant in partnership with HOK and NPNT. I hold professional experience in a multitude of digital tools, including Rhinoceros 3D, Grasshopper 3D, Unreal Engine, Unreal Blueprints, Vray, Complete Autodesk Suites, Complete Adobe Suites, SketchUp, Excel, Agisoft Metascan, among other tools. In addition, working as a lab assistant for two years, I have exceptional working experience in digital fabrication using laser cutters, 3D printers, CNC machines, Terrestrial laser scanners (LIDAR), giving me an immense knowledge in material exploration and testing. In addition, working as a teaching assistant for a digital fabrication and modeling theory class, I also have experience in running tutorial sessions and classes. Prior to my master’s degree, I worked as a project manager and site supervisor for a small design-build firm as well as an award-winning designer for a landscaping manufacture allowing me to gain hand on experience in built projects.
I hold a Master of Architecture degree at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada and an Honors Bachelor of Arts degree with distinction in Architectural design, Urban Studies, and Environmental and Physical Geography at the University of Toronto. Prior to that, I received a technical degree in Architectural Technology at Vanier College in Montreal.
My design ideology is understood as radical yet rational, where I continuously apply an ecological lens on his approach to architecture, landscape architecture and urban design. My strengths are in problem-solving using simple and pragmatic approaches to complex problems, organization, management, communication and documentation of work in progress. I also believes multi- and interdisciplinary work is crucial and necessary to the success of all architectural and cultural projects.
These skills and design ideology can be witnessed through my professional, academic and research projects.
