The process of architecture is to create an experience between the physical and spiritual through thoughtful design.  Architecture is the link between anthropology and art, drawing on creativity and pushing the envelope of design, while providing a form in which the users can function and experience.  Great architecture not only does this, but also draws out the emotions of those who experience it.


I am an Architectural Designer/Project Manager who has a Master's degree in Architecture with over 8 years of experience in design and construction on the West Coast and in the Midwest.  In addition, my experience includes observations and work while studying abroad in cutting-edge design cities and in developing countries.   I have broad experience in the architectural industry, including landscape design, master planning, forensic architecture, historic preservation, and interior design, with project types ranging in both public and private realms.


I feel architecture is all encompassing, including not only the building, but the surrounding landscape and its contextual relationship.  I thrive in participating in the entire architectural process from overall concept to intricate detailing.  My goal in architecture is to influence how we view and experience the world—and our place in it—through environmentally, socially and culturally conscientious design.
