ARCHITECTURE  

Architecture is the link between people and the environment in which they inhabit. It is the medium through which these two entities interact. I believe that a complete understanding of the different aspects of the urban environment is essential to a holistic design. It is this principle that shapes the prism through which I view the world. It provides the foundation upon which I hope to build a successful career. 

Practicing architecture has been a dream of mine since I accidentally fell in love with it during my sophomore year in high school in the year 2000. Everything I’ve done since then has been in pursuit of that dream. I was born in Jamaica, but raised all over the world. I received my B.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies with a focus in City Planning and the Environment from the University of Texas at Arlington in 2014. I’m currently enrolled in both the M.Arch and MCIRP programs at UTA with and expected graduation date of spring 2017.

It has been a long journey but there aren’t any parts of it that I would change. This adventure has afforded me the opportunity to experience the world and all that it has to offer. I’ve made some great friends, and shared a lot of laughs. Through it all the thing that I loved the most was interacting with the people and being completely immersed in their culture.

Who knew that a simple mistake such as misunderstanding a coarse description could have such a profound effect on the direction of your life. Before that day back in 2000 I wanted be in the FBI (I was huge X-Files fan).
