About 

I am an architectural intern and fine art designer, fabricator and project manager .  

I seek projects which engage technology and fabrication as necessary and fundamental aspects of the design process, and which understand architecture as the diagram for engaging social, spatial and environmental problems with this in mind.  

When I am not designing or fabricating you'll most likely find me snooping around the hills of LA searching out the relics and icons of historic southern california modernism with BikeHaus.
