About 

A LEED certified and licensed architect, I have over sixteen years experience, nine of which were working in the Interiors department of ZGF.  I have worked on various projects in the Portland metro area and across the country including medical, high-rise residential, commercial and corporate.  I have experience in management and the production of construction documents of new construction, renovations, and interior design.  

My passion is to create environments that allow people to perform their jobs better.  I love all stages of design from the project's initial programming to getting dirty on the construction site.
