I was born in Anchorage, Alaska and grew up in the Mat-Su Valley before attending the Illinois Institute of Technology, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture in 2009. I then attended the University of Newcastle upon Tyne for graduate school, where I earned a Master of Arts in Urban Design in 2011. I have completed the Alaska requirement of Northern Design Course, and have completed all required AXP hours. I have also taken all ARE exams, and am awaiting results from the last two.
