ARCHITECTURAL DESIGNER & FABRICATOR
As a designer I utilize my computer modeling skills to customize and fabricate built elements for clients desiring creative environments. The designs apply complex repetitive geometry through parametric models to elements of varying scales in architecture, sculpture or furniture. I enjoy the challenge of varying scale and program. From architectural design, and CAD models, to digital fabrication, and quality manual construction I refine the details.

- Digitally fabricated and assisted team in full scale construction of Camera Obscura structures featured at Scottsdale Art Festival. Developed 3D model of trapezoidal geometry. Completed process of material selection, feasibility, and construction.
- Developed urban design and community focused library and park for Sunnyslope. Created angular forms inspired by Daniel Libeskind to create interactive sloped roof planes for informal user defined functions.
- Performed material and form study of 16 inch cubes from conceptual stage to built development. The cubes were used as inspiration for a proposed public art center in downtown Phoenix. Regulated transitional geometry was used to create the steel structure of the Contemporary Art Center.
- Designed low income efficiency housing for Parkview Place. Devised prefabricated modules for mix-and-match options serving a variety of family needs. Constructed scaled 2x4 framing model to illustrate module and flat-pack assembly. Received Design Excellence Award Fall 2009.
- Created a reflective environment shaped by natural elements to form the Valley Memorial Historical Park. Sacred geometry was used to generate a reflection space for meditative thought. Formed the historical center roof line to mimic the movement of wind through an Arizona canyon.
- Conceived an Agricultural Center to reunite Native American canals and local farming history. Incorporated materials and site experience to encourage sustainable building and living. Produced detailed renderings of interior and exterior spaces of the Agricultural Learning Center to express building form and design.
