Have a sincere passion to make a difference through architecture and doing what I can to make that happen...working on it at best.
When I am not drafting, researching, studying, building, gardening, having fun with furniture, drawing, sketching, painting, learning, reading, building a business, or applying for employment...I can be found:
At the beach riding waves, hill bombing on my skateboard, exploring anything relating to A/E and construction, volunteering, or cruising around on my bicycle with Pandora as my guide.
Also, I really enjoy swimming and always at the pool!!!
