WHY SOLAR DECATHLON? I’m excited to have a hands-on learning environment with this design-build studio. I am also looking forward to furthering my knowledge in sustainable and regenerative building practices.

FAVORITE THING ABOUT AUSTIN: I love the opportunity to be one with nature-whether it be running on Town Lake, stand up paddle boarding through Lady Bird Lake, hiking through the Greenbelt, or dog/people-watching at Zilker on a sunny afternoon. I also love the abundant restaurant choices this city offers-there’s always something new to try.

FAVORITE BUILDING: Peter Zumthor’s Thermal Bath house in Vals. It embodies the influential power that architecture can emulate to those experiencing the space. Swimming in the various baths was an out of body experience and was one of the most relaxing experiences of my life.

FAVORITE MUSICIAN OR BAND: Tame Impala, Dr. Dog, Mac DeMarco, King Krule, Glass Animals
