ABOUT ME I am a 3rd year Architecture major at the Howard University School of Engineering and Architecture. I have received numerous academic honors and athletic recognition throughout my educational career. I have a passion for the arts and spend my spare time channeling my creativity through various art forms. My natural artistic talent coupled with an architecture degree will make me well prepared for a future as an Architect or Designer. I am from Chicago, IL, I am a graduate of Saint Ignatius College Prep High School, and I am expected to graduate from Howard University in May 2019. This portfolio contains a compilation of many diďŹ€erent forms of work that I have completed since I have been at Howard.

VILLA AT BORGO TICINO BUILDING ANALYSIS IN ORDER TO DEVELOP THE SKILLS AND CRITICAL THINKING OF AN ARCHITECT, ONE MUST STUDY THE ARCHITECTS THAT HAVE COME BEFORE HIS/HER TIME. THIS IS A BUILDING ANALISYS OF THE VILLA AT BORGO TICINO BY ALDO ROSSI. THIS AXONOMENTRIC DIAGRAM BREAKS DOWN THE DIFFERENT COMPENENTS OF THIS FAMOUS STRUCTURE. EACH OF THESE COMPONENTS ARE CRITICAL WHEN DESIGNING ANY BUILDING TYPE. AS THERE ARE NO DIGITAL RECORDS OF THE VILLA, A DIGITAL INTERPRETATION OF THE VILLA WAS CREATED USING DESIGN SOFTWARE.
EXPLODED AXON OF BUILDING ENVELOPE
2017 WALT DISNEY IMAGINATIONS COMPETITION - FINALIST
Campus Canvas is a celebration of artistic expression and creativity inspired by the street art of Washington DC. Aside from being the capital of the United States, Washington, DC is known for its diversity, rich culture and deeply rooted history, all of which are showcased over various mediums throughout the city. The contemporary, ever changing nature of street art creates an environment that is engaging and interesting to visitors of the city. It gives them something to look at and think about as they go about their day. Campus Canvas will transform building facades and other installations around Howard University into a canvas for expression with the use of smart glass technology. Guests will be able to directly inďŹ‚uence the campus as they create their own original street art through digital painting. This outlet for artistic expression will transform the atmosphere of the campus from one that is bland and monotonous to one that is bold and dynamic. It embraces the tradition of the university while also emphasizing the importance of now by utilizing the schoolâ€™s existing building to create a new art form.
The project was conceived by the Howard University Team and created for the 2017 Walt Disney Imagineeringâ€™s Imaginations Design Competition. This project is the sole property of Walt Disney Imagineering and all rights to use these ideas are exclusive to Walt Disney Imagineering. The competition is a way for students and recent graduates to showcase their talents and for Walt Disney Imagineering to identify new talent.
2017 WALT DISNEY IMAGINATIONS COMPETITION - FINALIST LED
Guest will acquire a digital spray can from a charging station on campus. They approach the smart glass, choose a color, and spray! An infrared LED located on the nozzle emits light that is reﬂected oﬀ the glass and into a sensor. The sensor uses this information to communicate with the smart glass as to precisely where and of what color paint should appear. The can expels a colored mist that gives the feeling of real spray without actually leaving any pigment on glass to provide an authentic street art experience.
ERGONOMIC DESIGN HUE CHANGER
