Each dashed line represents a year I have worked, beginning with 2003, up to 2011. I generally only worked during the summer because of school. Each highlighted shape represents the places I have worked, and projects in my portfolio. Breaks between spaces are breaks in time. The change of the shape’s edges represent changes in work or tasks at the time, for that job.

Project Description ARC 402 Design Studio A sustainable campus, designed according to a given program, for a specific site. It must respect the local environment and culture, yet fit within the surrounding urban environment. The site is a large open area surrounded by housing. In Haiti it is difficult to receive a direct line of resources from the city, such as water and electricity, encouraging self-sustainable design. The campus will house separate classrooms for grades 6-12 and broken into 3 separate learning communities that share common supplemental spaces such as a gymnasium and a library.

Project Description ARC 402 Design Studio Group Project Site was given in downtown Manhattan, the Financial District. The program was not given. We decided on a mixed use program of hotel, apartments, and luxury apartments to suit the needs of people working in this area. We also wanted to integrate public lobbies within the tower, bringing in greenery and light. Mixing the public and private areas of the building created a circulation problem, but we used a system of stop-skip elevators to solve this.

ARC 451 Design Studio Group Project The Bus Shelter Prototype Project was done by our studio section of 15 students. The environmental condition of the Sonoran Desert presented unique challenges to public transportation. High temperatures and intense sunlight inhibit ridership and the use of public transportation. Current bus shelters are not designed in response to these conditions. The studio initially developed 15 schematic designs, 4 of which were selected for further development. Eventually a single scheme was selected.

Project Description ARC 497u Geometry, Material, Ergonomics We began our class by researching geometry, ergonomics, and materials. I wanted to research a material that be thin and light, and when stretched could serve as a stiff surface. I began my research with canvas fabric. As my research progressed I found that the weave causes weakness in the material when pulled diagonal to it. I researched other materials and eventually discovered rawhide. It became the perfect material for my purposes and from it I designed a small table.

Project Description ART The drawings that are included in my portfolio were drawn when I was in high school or college. Most of my drawings are derived from a source photograph. The drawings of the old Chinese man and the ship were based on photographs I found in old “National Geographic� magazines. None of my drawing are traced and they are all drawn free-hand.
