About 

I cut my teeth as an artist and professional furniture-maker. I later returned to study architecture at the University of Minnesota, studying urban design and digital fabrication. Now, with my M.Arch in hand, I am looking to start work. My aspirations as a designer are to bring the tradition of fine craft back into building and to design public spaces that are sensitive to their context and robustly relevant in their planning.
