Staff Architect

Bachelor of Architecture, Syracuse University

Emmei moved from Miami to Raleigh, NC at age seven. In high school, she joined the ACE Mentor Program and attended various summer architecture programs to increase her knowledge of the industry before, inevitably, deciding to pursue a design career. Her approach is rooted in storytelling and the ability to use architecture as a means to express or convey a message related to society’s current needs and beliefs. She’s always had a soft spot for DC, having grown up visiting family in the area, and considers it one of the few true melting pots in the U.S. For fun, Emmei likes baking, indoor rock climbing and bouldering, photography, and exploring new cities.
