About 

I am a designer, maker and thinker. First being introduced to the profession of architecture by way of fabrication, I have maintained an insightful position with regard to solution finding and a believe that good design happens through an intimate understanding of designer, client, and craftsman relationships. I have married the idea that one must earn the right to make decisions by experiencing the place where they have the most effect.

For now, I make things.

SITU Studio, Brooklyn, NY, US, Designer & Fabricator

The organization of Situ Studio’s workspace, split evenly between a fabrication shop and a design studio, reflects a commitment to interrogating design ideas through physical and material experimentation at a wide range of scales. The integration of the workshop space into the design practice itself introduces a high degree of flexibility in workflow – it is not uncommon for design studies to proceed in the form of full scale material experimentation in the earliest phases of a project’s development. This approach seeks to place the virtual and physical components of the practice into a productive and non-linear relationship that creates space for the act of making to become a generative part of the design process.
