Why did you choose the University of Virginia?
I chose UVa for the interdisciplinary opportunities. I was interested in studying landscape architecture and planning in addition to architecture and UVa makes that very easy.
How did you become interested in Architecture?
I began studying architecture as an undergraduate student. What drew me to architecture was the potential for design to bring about social and environmental change.
What do you like best about Charlottesville?
Being near the mountains and good local produce.
What is the most exciting project you've worked on?
This semester I am getting involved with Anselmo Canfora’s reCOVER. I am very excited to work on a project with an actual client, which will be built within the next few months.
What have you learned that surprised you?
In my first semester we learned about parametric design and how to use grasshopper as a design tool. This opened my eyes to a whole different way of thinking and designing.
