View my online design + architecture portfolio at:, or through issuu. I love all aspects of design, and enjoy the creative process of developing an idea into something built and usable. Good design observes local climate and existing site, explores ideas and real world constrictions, and blends beauty and function seamlessly to inspire and enhance the quality of life.

I love seeking adventure, photography, and building projects with my husband Ryan, and our dogs Milo and Inali, our anatolian dane and crazy little aussie. We jump at any chance to get out onto the trails, canyons, or mountains.

Currently looking for new opportunities in architecture and design, interested in relocation.  Please contact me to meet or discuss any of my projects.
