About 

Always seeking new ways landscape and architecture can be woven together to define spaces and experiences through material, program and light.

Searching for professional employment, working on LEED GA & AP BD & C certification, moving to NYC in 2016 to further path to licensure.

Thesis work during graduate program focused on researching methods / strategies of memorial design in the United States, with a design proposal that provides one solution to memorializing ambiguous events with shifting viewpoints and perspectives.  Through the utilization of architecture and landscape architecture, the thesis analyzed the place of a memorial in the age of terror, the contemporary time period that currently occupies the ongoing U.S. War on Terror.
