About Me

Hi! I'm Shandon, a creative and curious millennial raised in Dubai and India. I'm currently a Sophomore at IIT where I major in Architecture, minor in Construction Management and specialize in Digital Design.

I'm a member of the IIT AIAS Chapter and have big plans for the future of this chapter! I have extra-curriculars which include an architecture/design related Instagram page, a VSCO page for displaying my keen photography skills, projects that relate to courses learnt in the software of Revit and SketchUp, specifically, a design blog that displays my sketches and ideas that are not related to the field of Architecture, and also a YouTube channel where I tried exploring the fields of Editing and Film-Making. 

If you're interested in working with me or just want to talk, you can reach out to me on any of my social media platforms that are provided!

Work Experience

I enjoy the practice of implementing skills learned from studio assignments into my projects which I participate in at my internships. I feel that my failures help me to do better in my future endeavors. I'm currently looking for an Architecture Internship for the month of December 2019, if you feel I'm a good fit for the position available, please contact me!
