About 

I believe that Architecture is a careful analysis of asking questions and research to apply those facts to start a rapid procession of design collaboration into a final nurtured design.

I recently Graduated with a Bachelors degree in Environmental Design emphasis in Architecture from The University of Colorado at Boulder in December 2010.

Cultural effects on the Built Environment in Rio de Janeiro

I would like to start a blog about my upcoming travels to Rio de Janiero, Brazil. I am going to visually document and narrate my adventures around the city and local areas. I really want to share my findings with the architectural community and help document what people dont see in the websites online. I will be looking at the city from a macro to micro view all the time, taking into account the minute details to the overall city.

In my last undergraduate studio, our studio teamed up with Architecture Firm RNL in Denver to design a Cultural Center for their new harbor front Urban Planning project located in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi, UAE. I designed a full mixed-use site that incorporates the cultural center which holds a performance art academy and the museum with retail. As well as the naturally cooled Residential tower which is fully mixed use as well. The buildings were also designed to naturally cool and ventilate the people inside.
