About 

I’m a 2007 graduate of the University Of Kentucky College Of Design with an accredited bachelor’s degree in Architecture. Since graduation I’ve had the privilege to be involved with a variety of projects including two federal prisons, an hotel grand ballroom, a restaurant/bar, a Kentucky DOC facility, an historic theater, multiple private residences and multiple projects for Maker's Mark bourbon distillery. I’ve skilled in the use of AutoCAD, Autodesk Revit, Adobe Photoshop and Google SketchUp. In the future I hope to apply my talents to designs that challenge the traditional built environment and the way that the public thinks of “architecture” as a whole.

I’ve completed all of my requisite training hours for the Intern Development Program. I have passed the Structural Systems, Construction Documents and Services, Programming Planning and Practice, and Site Design and Evaluation portions of the ARE. I hope to be fully licensed in the next 2 years. I’m also very interested in green design and plan to study for LEED accreditation in the future.
