The process by which a seemingly insurmountable heap of information is collaboratively sorted, related and placed in order that it may become something beautiful, something useful and something more.
Not unlike a poet’s attempt at portraying the first encounters with love anew, there is no right nor wrong. One cannot accurately portray truths with any certainty. It is this constant evaluation and obscurity that entices my mind to connect with others in order to envision both a beautiful and healthy future.
In my final year of study, a love for prose allowed me to take on the editorship of Oz Journal—one of the few student-run architectural journals in the country—for the College of Architecture. In concert with the editorship, master studies took my body, mind and twelve classmates to Sandnes, Norway to envision a healthy future for the city. We then published RDaSCP (Roasted Duck and Sugar Coated Potatoes); this is an account of our research, our process, our experiences and our vision for global city making.
In addition to my studies, I was involved in design-build projects with boxlab inc., and design work with LBA, Larry Bowne Architect. My experience ranges from office and residential work in New York to furniture design and fabrication in the midwestern United States, and from international architecture competitions to website design and publishing.
I currently work at these many scales in an Arkansan design firm while persuing licensure, competitions and other small design projects.
