Brooklyn, NY, US



I received my M.Arch. at Savannah College of Art and Design in beautiful Savannah, Georgia, where I am the 2012 SCAD Graduate-Level Salutatorian. I also hold a B.A. in Interior Design from University of Kentucky. I have work experience in architecture, interior design, visualization, graphic design, and construction. A sense of curiosity, positivity, and tenacity guide my work ethic and my process.

My thesis explores the complex social and collaborative dynamic of the film-making process, and asserts that film - like all forms of story-telling - asks many questions of architecture. 'Persistence of Vision: A Film-Making Collaborative' received the 2012 Thesis Award for Exceptional Achievement.

I love watching movies, hanging out with my nephews, reading about science and faraway places, and being ever curious about the world.
