What brought you to architecture?
From a young age I really enjoyed drawing cartoon characters. In third grade I was tested to join the gifted art program at school which I passed and was a part of the program through twelfth grade. Senior year in high school I knew I wanted to go to college but wasn’t too sure what I wanted to major in. I liked the idea of spatial art so I went for architecture.
