My studies in education called my attention to ‘architecture as pedagogy,’ a belief that we learn from buildings. In underlying educational philosophies, such as Reggio Emilia or Waldorf, the physical environment is viewed as a 'third teacher.’ Seeing the built environment through the lens of education has fuelled my architectural interests. We can learn from buildings as we learn to build them. Some of my design project deals with the task of adaptive reuse, contemplating on buildings within a longer time frame. Other projects focus on texture and materiality, creating designs that evoke our senses and draw our attention to the ordinary. Along the way I have developed an attentiveness to making malleable spaces that we can learn from.

I am currently a Master of Architecture candidate at the Harvard Graduate School of Design and hold a B.A from Ryerson University where I majored in early childhood education.
