The Bachelor of Architect program at Dunwoody College is fairly new, and I’ll be in just the second graduating class. I love it there because unlike many traditional architecture schools, I get to take all the architecture classes and stay with my cohort for all five years. We have a supportive and connected group, kind of like a family—it’s a cool culture.

NewStudio is a lot like that, and it’s one of the reasons I wanted to gain student-working experience here. I’ve known since I was young that I have a passion for architecture; it’s exciting to share that with the NewStudio staff. There’s a spontaneity in conversations in the office and an easy-going professionalism that feels creative and productive. Everyone is ready to get to work. Who wouldn’t want to be part of that?

People May Not Know This About Me:

I’m Looking Forward To:
Studying for nine weeks in Barcelona next year
