Based in San Francisco, CA I draw inspiration from past interdisciplinary experiences to create spaces and environment sensitive to human needs.

In 2011 I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) focusing in Ceramics from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), and later received a Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch) from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in 2012. Since that time I have moved to the Bay area and have focused on environment/landscape based spatial projects at local companies such as Interstice Architects and Bionic Landscape.
