Alexis is currently pursuing her graduate studies at the School of Architecture, University of Puerto Rico in Rio Piedras, concurrently holding the position of a research assistant in the School of Architecture’s Library and Archive. She completed her Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Spanish at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge.
Alexis employs visual representation tools to skillfully convey ideas, harnessing the power of BIM modeling, rendering, and collaging to bring visions to life. Her work primarily focuses on promoting restoration and reuse projects in Puerto Rico. Additionally, she crafted a distinctive travel experience aimed at providing direct support for agroecology, construction, urban farming, and resiliency efforts in Puerto Rico. Alexis has also channeled her passion for design into optimizing product value through creative display presentations, excelling in her role as a visual merchandiser.
Alexis holds the belief that design can build community and elevate the quality of life when we embark on the journey of reshaping our world to align with the needs of all living beings, particularly the most vulnerable ones. As William McDonough asserts in “Cradle to Cradle,” the question that guides this perspective is, “How do we love all the children of all species for all time?”
