Designer + Dual Master of Arch , Master of LArch

Profile I am graduate from the dual master of architecture, master of landscape architecture program at the University of Tennessee. My interest in design can be traced back to growing up with a father who is a carpenter and machinist. The exposure to both of these crafts sparked my interest first in building and led me to architecture. I had always wanted to become a teacher and began my undergraduate career in education, although I chose not to pursue that degree, I believe it is what has given me a love for learning and teaching others. Throughout my time at the University of Tennessee I have had the opportunity to serve as a teaching assistant in many courses, this renewed my passion to become an educator. After graduation, I hope to find myself in an environment where I can continue to learn and grow as a professional. Ultimately I am seeking a position that will allow me to combine my love for design and desire to teach others.
