This portfolio displays samples of some of my work I have designed during my undergraduate degree in Landscape Architecture with a minor in Urban Planning at Texas A&M University. I am currently a third year student in the four-year program with hopes of obtaining my Bachelors Degree in Landscape Architecture in May of 2019. These projects and construction drawings were chosen to represent my work that show my skills and how I have developed over the years. They do vary from my first year up to my third year as a landscape architecture student. Some paintings and photographs that I enjoy taking and doing are also included in this portfolio.

SPRING 2017 El Campo Downtown Revitilazation was a group project based on the communityâ€™s needs. As a group our goal was to enhance the downtown area by creating a friendly-safe space with connections throughout downtown, increasing the day and night life, while also including more art and aesthetically pleasing views.

EL CAMPO, TX
In order to start with the process of design we broke the important areas into three
phases. The 1st phase is improvement of
the alleys, 2nd phase is the Bar District, and 3rd phase is Evans Park
These perspectives show the enhancement the design has brought by incorporating food trucks, lots of sitting, more lighting, and vegetation to give the night life a more safe and comfortable feeling within the community.
FALL 2017 SUNNYSIDE - HOUSTON, TX G.R.O.W. Stands for Generating a healthier community, Restoring ecosystems, Obtaining green spaces, and Withhold from flooding. Problem statement: Current Urbanization patterns are decreasing animal territories, disconnecting habitat areas, and reducing the amount of green space resulting in a massive decrease in species richness. New development has also had an impact on the community through increased flooding.
As a team we received the â€œMerit Awardâ€? for the 2017 Design for Environmental Justice from the Institute of Sustainable Communities.

Suitability maps showed the places were species richness could be most efficiently located. All done by Raul Peraza, Thu Bui, and myself.

SPRING 2017 The community of Lufkin gave us the opportunity to revitalize a part of their community. I worked on Jones Park, located adjacent to Jones Lake. It is important for the people to feel safe and comfortable as well as aquiring benefits from the community center.
-Provide safe and comfortable areas for children such as; a playground, pool, and splashpad -Include sitting and shade -Incorporate a community garden for the benefit of the people -Provide a boardwalk with an island deck to give the park a connection throughout the rest of the lake

PAINTINGS/PHOTOGRAPHS Photography has become a new hobby of mine and I have been editing in Photoshop as well as on Adobe Lightroom.
Landscapes are one of the many different themes I enjoy painting on my free time.
