Class of 2018
Hometown: Rosario, Argentina
I decided to join DSAB to become a more active member not only in the College of Design, but also in the architecture field. I am eager to contribute and learn from the many opportunities that the board offers to their members, while enhancing a working environment in which design students and alumni can be involved and interact.

I’m excited to serve on the DSAB because I believe it is an opportunity to collaborate with different disciplines and professionals to enrich our education. I hope to bring my enthusiasm for cross-disciplinary events. I look forward to helping build on the already strong student and professional community here at the University of Minnesota.

Vice President, Parker Design International
I joined DSAB to become reacquainted with the Minneapolis design community, expand my personal design network, and provide real-world design expertise for students as they move on to their next professional chapter.
Associate Vice President, HGA
M.Arch 2006, Architecture
I feel honored to be a part of a design community where the professional community is so closely linked to the academic community. I joined the DSAB to help keep those connections strong – for both students and alumni alike. As a professional, I benefit from staying current with issues our students are facing, and I am eager to help students make the transition from college to career.
