About 

Architectural Designer looking to work in an innovative practice. My interests rest in the desire to design and communicate ideas at all scales from overall form to details. I look to integrate design in such a way as to create fully synthetic projects. Digital fabrication and furniture design are passions of mine which fuel my creativity.
