• I am a graduate of the College of Design at NCSU and thought it would be best to start at what was my beginning in the field of architecture.

    Being a student in the College of Design was a great experience for me and a time to develop my abilities, explore the world of art, architecture and design and share with students in other areas of the college information and ideas we were learning about.
