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 also become 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 portion of the ARE and am currently studying to take my remaining exams. I’m also very interested in green design and plan to study for LEED accreditation this year.
Ever since I was a small child, my brain has been translating ideas and concepts into pictures. In addition to architecture, I also love cartoons and have an extensive cartooning career; during my tenure at the University of Kentucky I had more than eighty editorial cartoons published in the Kentucky Kernal, UK’s award-winning student published newspaper.
