I am fascinated with architecture and the design of habitats. I just moved back to CO after living in NYC for the last six and a half years. I am passionate about everything I get involved with from training dogs to live in the urban landscape to practicing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I am currently enamored with what I consider "evolving" architecture - architecture that remains open and inhabited but is still built upon and developed.
