Born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico. I am an undergraduate student from the University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras Campus, majoring in Environmental Design in the School on Architecture. My undergraduate research is on queer space theory, public housing, and architecture documentation, concentrated in a particular case study of a queer space within public housing in Puerto Rico. I also have a great interest in the fields of industrial design and graphic design. I am committed to pursuing a Master in Architecture and later a Ph.D. in Architecture. I enjoy drawing, painting, playing guitar, swimming, and surfing in my spare time.
