I am a Graphic Design professional that thrives on built projects and landscape ventures. I am an enthusiast of anything intersecting architecture, history, graphic design, and public/fine art. My specialty is the adaptive reuse of structures and their preceding vision, promotion and planning. I like to be involved in every step of a project if possible - from shoveling dirt to making educated judgments upon what makes a most viable scheme. The most interesting projects for me are those that involve hurdles with sensitive building fabric. Aside from 'recycling' antiquated structures, finding ways to make residential housing more affordable is another significant goal I have.
