Quote from Fellow

“I am honored and thrilled to join the City of LA Innovation Team as a Designmatters Fellow and bring forward the The Mayor’s Challenge Accessory Dwelling Unit project to Angelenos and provide more housing options and alleviate the challenges of citizens experiencing homelessness. With my long-standing interest in combining my architectural, technological, and community engagement skills to design human-centered approaches to LA’s housing crisis, I look forward to being a part of this historical project, learn about the inner workings of innovation in government, and explore the role of a civic designer under the mentorship of Bloomberg Philanthropies and the Innovation Team. I feel very grateful and lucky to begin my post-ArtCenter career continuing my thesis interests and serving the city I’ve come to call home. Thanks Designmatters! “
