I'm a Leo, Type B blood, and an ENTJ if those mean anything to you. Otherwise I'm a conglomeration of odd bits n' ends that rigorously co-ordinate themselves to define me as an architectural designer.
If I had a pet, it'd be a jellyfish.
If I had to live forever in one place it'd be Amsterdam.
If I had to eat one thing for the rest of my life, it'd be jalapeno hummus.
If you asked me why architecture, I'd like to know your answer first.

Laskey Award, 1st Place
"The Laskey Award is a particular, alternative scholarship. The award encourages open-ended process, broad investigation, collaborative discovery and educational potential. The Award considers challenge equal to any possible product.
The Award supports and promotes a sharable, public, and very alive endeavor. Studio L’s goals provide students in the College of Architecture with opportunities to advance ideas in ways and by means distinct from the normal curricular structure of classes and studios of the school.
The Laskey Award process embodies a vehicle for his former students to interact with current students of the School of Architecture. As such the award is a forum to share past and present experience in design."
