About 

I am a graduate intern architect from Indianapolis, Indiana. I am interested the relationship between the built world and history. I am passionate in continuing my professional education and developing re-use, renovation, and preservation conversations across both the professional field and the local community. As someone relatively new to professional practice, I want to experience a multitude of project types and scales, and I feel I would be able to contribute to a wide range of expertise.


I recently presented my thesis work, which won the College of Architecture’s Excellence in Architectural History Award, to the SeSAH conference where it was well received. My experience in Charlotte and exploring the southeastern United States also demonstrates my willingness to travel anywhere to seek out new experiences and knowledge.

University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Charlotte, NC, US, Research and Teaching Assistant

Graduate Teaching Assistant for Dr. Charles L. Davis II with course entitled ‘Race and Place’

Students analyzed the most contemporary definitions of ‘race’ and ‘place’ produced by scholars in geography, architecture, urban studies and ethnic studies. These definitions helped identify and critique the racial landscapes that have emerged around the world and, allowed students to investigate the ways vernacular forms and local cultures continue to reflect racial and ethnic categories. The Graduate Teaching Assistant’s duties included assisting with student inquiries, grading daily response questions, tests, and homework essays, as well as assisting with management of the grade book.

Graduate Research assistant for Professor Deborah Ryan with course entitled ‘Race Health and Privilege in Community Design.’

Closely following Thomas W. Hanchett’s book, Sorting Out the New South City: Race, Class, and Urban Development in Charlotte, 1875-1975, students were introduced to impact of race, culture, and health on urban design and city planning through the history of the city of Charlotte, North Carolina. They learned elementary tools and techniques for evaluating, analyzing and understanding these relationships. Some highlights included: the relationship between public health, community design and disparities from the perspective of race and ethnicity; defining and measuring public health and systemic racism in the city; patterns of urban settlement, racial segregation and demography in the United States and especially in Charlotte; civic engagement and public health education; environmental injustice; and Charlotte’s neighborhood schools and the city’s history of busing. The Graduate Researcher’s duties included pre-reading the text and developing historical and text-based connections for class discussions, writing and administering weekly tests based on the readings, and administration of the online classroom site.

Collaboration with non-profit ecoREHAB of Muncie, Inc., Ball State University, and City of Muncie’s Department of Community Development, under the direction Associate Professor of Architecture Jonathan Spodek.

Working collaboratively with Ball State University, the City of Muncie’s Department of Community Development and the local non-profit agency ecoREHAB of Muncie, Inc. ecoREHAB’s goal was to provide leadership in ecologically sound, green, and sustainable rehabilitation of existing and abandoned housing. This benefited not only Ball State students, but also the communities of Muncie by taking steps to achieving the National Goals Towards Sustainable Development in the areas of environmental protection, economic prosperity, and social equity.

Under the leadership of Ball State Associate Professor of Architecture Jonathan Spodek, and Bill Morgan, Muncie Historic Preservation Officer, ecoREHAB secured a $85,000 grant from Muncie’s Community Development Block Grant program which allowed students to re-construct the 601 E. Washington Street project house in Muncie, Indiana for low income housing. 601 East Washington, located in the Emily Kimbrough Historic District, was a three-bedroom home in the Italianate style build in 1861 and was remolded in 1874-75. The house was home to both James Boyce, a local Muncie Industrials and then later Judge Thomas Sample who funded the remodel in the 1870s. During the Summer of 2010, students completed major construction and restoration work on the home including framing, insulation, drywall, masonry work, electrical, finishes, landscaping, and the restoration of the exterior of the home.

The Summer Intern’s duties were to lead the student group in the restoration of the house’s extensive plasterwork and, with the assistance of Griffin Restoration, the repairs and restoration of all of the house’s original exterior doors and windows.

THESIS:

After the [af]fair: A study of Seattle’s 1962 World Fair site’s Legacy in an Evolving Civic World

University of North Carolina Charlotte
May 11, 2013

In this study Seattle, and the site of the 1962 World’s Fair, will be used to understand the adaptations made to meet the changing needs and trends of the city and its citizens. The Seattle World’s Fair, celebrated its fiftieth anniversary in 2012 and was commemorated at the site with a six-month long festival in 2012, which included special programming such as lectures, movies, books, and museum exhibits. This citywide attention to a World Fair event that occurred fifty years ago demonstrates Seattle’s lasting commitment to such a site.

The ongoing interest in dedication is evident by the several plans the city has prepared to remap the trajectory of the site since 1962. This study will focus on four of these different and distinct civic planning approaches for the Seattle Center that has occurred over the past half century. Bolstered by historical archival data and editorials, it will argue that each represent different eras and will highlight the series of changes in planning methods in order to provide an understanding of the evolution of the site and Seattle’s civic planning theory. This study will demonstrate the ways that changing ideas about civic centers and urban planning and design at a national and international scale were translated to changing visions of a specific local site. In addition, through the discourse in the local and national popular press, this study will begin to develop a perspective of the role and response of the Seattle population in civic planning.
