I was born and raised in the border city of Laredo, Texas. Growing up, I knew I wanted to broaden my horizons. I also thought I would grow up to do something with art. I was constantly drawing and had a knack for math in middle school and high school, so I thought architecture was a good combination of the two. After graduating from high school, I took classes at a community college in Austin. I eventually transferred to UTSA where I began my journey into the world of architecture. I came to love the projects that were given to me and the thought process that was needed in order to complete them. I quickly learned that it wasn’t just about creating something arbitrarily beautiful or aesthetically pleasing—but it was about defining the problem, collecting information, and working on a solution. By the time I was in my second year of architecture school, I realized I didn’t know what I would be doing if it wasn’t for architecture.
A year before graduating, I studied abroad in Barcelona, Spain for 3 months. It was my first trip out of the country and out of Texas. I fell in love with the city of Barcelona! It was an eye opening experience—not only in terms of architecture but also in terms of what the world has to offer. I returned to the States to graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Architecture in the summer of 2015 and joined GSBS shortly after.
In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with friends, going out, trying new places to eat, discovering new music to listen to and bicycling.
